SCICOMM 2A03: Foundations in Science Communication

How do scientists make sure their work in the lab or field is put to good use in communities? They communicate it to their peers, policymakers and the public. In this course, students will learn and practice the basics of effective written, visual and oral science communication. They will create research papers, posters, lay summaries, graphical abstracts, oral presentations, commentaries and tweets that tackle a range of scientific disciplines and explore the growing field of science communication research. [3 units]

ISCI 3A12 A/B: Integrated Science III

Interdisciplinary research projects and development of scientific and literacy skills (including data analysis, inquiry/scientific communication and leadership). Students will participate in individual and team research projects in field and laboratory settings. Up to three mandatory one-day field trips will be held. [12 units]

ISCI 2A18 A/B: Integrated Science II

Integrates learning of biochemistry, biology, chemistry, earth science, mathematics, neuroscience and physics. Students will participate in individual and team research projects in field and laboratory settings and will further develop skills in research methodology, ethics, and science literacy. [18 units]

ISCI 1A24 A/B: Integrated Science I

Integrates learning of essential knowledge and skills from the fundamental scientific disciplines (biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, earth science and psychology) in the context of pertinent topics and projects. Interdisciplinary teams of instructors will teach and linkages between discipline areas will be emphasized partly through study of ‘thematic modules.’ [24 units]
