Science Communication minor
This minor will teach you how to communicate effectively with diverse audiences ranging from school children to scientists, using a range of media and genres from podcasts and posters to blogs and exhibitions. Science communicators use their knowledge of both science and communication to increase engagement with important issues that have science at their core. Science Communication also provides you with excellent written, oral, and visual communication skills, and you will meet and work with industry experts, enhancing your networking and employment opportunities.
Students are able to (1) demonstrate an understanding of how scientific knowledge is made and be able to interpret scientific information; (2) create effective and engaging materials in a range of media to communicate scientific information to diverse audiences; (3) appraise the social context in which both science and science communication occur; and (4) demonstrate a capacity for self-reflection and an understanding of ethical issues in both science and science communication.
