MIIM 520S Science Communication and Outreach 2.0 Credits
This course is a community-based learning course and combines in-class lectures and discussions with fieldwork. The priorities of the course are two-fold. First, to improve science communication skills with the public and secondly to address the need to dismantle systemic racism in the sciences and build a future that includes a diversified science community. The course is based on current peer-reviewed literature, current events, and societal issues. The student will participate in two outreach initiatives that require on-site visits or virtual synchronous meetings.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
