The Graduate Program in Science Journalism at Boston University is a one-year experience tailored in particular to budding journalists with a strong science interest and background. Our program is media-neutral, offering courses in print, broadcast and on-line media, with a focus on story telling technique–particularly non-fiction narrative. Graduates of the program have gone on to have rich and fulfilling media
careers–ranging from public radio and television, to magazines, newspapers, and a wide variety of scientific institutions.
The Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT helps science and technology journalists build their competence, confidence, and connections through a nine-month fellowship program structured around course work, seminars, field trips, and workshops.
The MIT Graduate Program in Science Writing is a program for English and science majors, freelance writers or journalists seeking a specialty, working scientists, and others in which to learn the art and discipline of science writing.
