A Toolkit for Communicating Environmental Science

Credits: 3

Spring 2023: M, 9:00-11:50, Kroon 321

This course is designed to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of why environmental science communication often fails, and to leave them with a skill set that will enable them to overcome these difficulties and communicate successfully. The course introduces students to the complex intersection between environmental science and the media—broadly defined—and gives them the tools to navigate it in the 2020s and beyond, whether they plan to pursue careers as scientists or as environmental leaders who need to communicate often with the media and public.
