Masters (MS) in Science Translation & Outreach

Bridge the gap from the data to the public. Data and research are most meaningful when applied beyond labs and academic journals. Science must be understood by the public, and applied to real-life issues. Employers know this - from government agencies to private companies - and they seek employees with the skills to make it happen. This online program prepares you to identify, sort and interpret credible information to the public.
