Why Study Science Dissemination at CWU?

In today's post-truth world, science communication is increasingly important. Journalists and politicians typically know limited science, while scientists are often not trained to communicate the scientific knowledge that drives our society's progression. The ability to effectively communicate complex, scientific information, however, is what bridges the gap between scientific facts and the general public.

Through this certificate, you will combine the use of scientific communication modes, such as statistics and visualization, with more traditional modes of verbal and written communication among 6 core areas: quantitative representation, written dissemination, verbal dissemination, visualization, one elective, and a culminating experience. Invest in your future and contribute to promoting scientific literacy and understanding through Science Dissemination.
