WSC 132 - (AA) Communicating Science in Public CultureSemester Hours: 3
Scientific information is generally written and presented to peer audiences before being adapted for the general public. The representation of scientific information is therefore of interest to many different audiences. This course will allow students to examine and critically assess the means by which scientific information is adapted and communicated for various audiences. Students will expand their understanding of the forms and functions of science communication in structured, peer reviewed formats and assess how that material is adapted into other genres. Writing assignments will include at least one structured scientific document (abstract, poster, slide kit and/or paper) and at least one adaptation of peer-reviewed scientific material to another format (such as creative nonfiction, blog, or video).
WSC 001 or permission of the instructor. May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis.
