Description

This class explores how the public consumes scientific information and how scientific findings translate into policy. We explore issues like evolution, climate change, and vaccinations to understand the nature and boundaries of scientific knowledge, the challenges faced by reporters in science journalism, how the public forms its views on these issues, and how that affects policy. This year, we take a special look at how science communication and policymaking fared in the coronavirus pandemic.
