The role of science communication in our media-rich society

How do scientists effectively communicate their ideas to the public? How do journalists and media professionals decipher scientific knowledge and make it accessible to a wide readership?

“Not only is it important to ask questions and find the answers, as a scientist I felt obligated to communicate with the world what we were learning.” 
― Stephen Hawking

Students in SUNY Oswego’s “Communicating Science in Media” class explored the above questions over the Spring 2019 semester. From the minds and talent of 15 Broadcasting/Journalism students, 1 Physics student, 1 Physics Professor and 1 Digital Media Professor, we document this collaborative journey here.

All of the content and material on this site are student designed and generated as a cooperative project between the School of Communication, Media and the Arts, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at SUNY Oswego.
