**Open to all majors** The goal of this course is to help journalism students learn how to write about science, and science majors (and other majors) learn how to write like journalists.
The Robertson School and VCU Libraries are teaming up to offer the class, which is funded by a Quest Innovation Grant. Students will hear from science writers at top newspapers and magazines (they’ll serve as guest speakers, online and in person). With guidance, students will write news stories about research being done at VCU involving such topics as the environment, health and medicine, and technology. The students’ stories will be showcased in a magazine on the VCU Libraries’ Scholars Compass website. Click on the link to sign up: http://tinyurl.com/sci-j-override
