JOURN 130 | Finding the Narrative in the Science

2021 Spring | Tues, Thurs 11 AM–12:30 PM | COURSE #33511 | UNITS: 3

Mark Schapiro & Ansel Olive Klein

Science is the basis for our understanding of the world. At a time when those very principles are under assault, this course aims to impart the skills young scientists will need to tell the stories of their and other scientists’ work. 

We’ll learn the narrative techniques necessary to tell compelling stories grounded in science, and develop our ability to interpret scientific findings with the eyes of a storyteller. This class is designed to provide greater facility in understanding scientific findings, as well as identifying and building upon the narratives often contained within them.
