MSCH J460/J660: Science in the Public Sphere
9:30-10:45 Tues/Thurs
Spring 2019

Details: This class investigates the relationship between scientists and various non-scientist groups, including policymakers, journalists, and the general public. Students will analyze how scientific research is communicated between scientists as well as to these other groups, and discover how the different communication and knowledge needs of journalists, policymakers, and the public influence those groups’ interpretations of scientific findings. Drawing on this conceptual work, students will then practice science communication skills in the area of food systems and sustainability science specifically.​​
