EN-UY 2204W Science Journalism

4 Credits
Introduction to a field of specialized writing that includes science and technology articles geared to an informed lay audience and published in newspapers, business magazines, niche publications, and online journals and blogs. Students will read and comment on classic pieces written since the field began to take shape as a major sector of the media following World War II. Students will research and write news and feature articles on science, technology, and medical issues, with the clear purpose of publishing their work in the school newspaper. Emphasis will be on research, development of interviewing skills, accuracy and clarity in reporting, and writing style. Each student will also compose a major “think” piece that explores and interprets a complex, controversial public-policy issue besetting one of the science/technology disciplines today.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of first year writing requirements
