The B.A. in Science Communication from Stevens Institute of Technology teaches students to convey information about science, technology and medicine to experts and non-experts in the public, private and non-profit sectors, using a wide variety of media from newspapers and blogs to radio and television. Science communication majors and minors will benefit from learning their craft at Stevens, one of the world's leading research institutions.

The curriculum of the B.A. in science communication begins with foundational courses in the history and social study of science, technology, and engineering. Students will move on to advanced courses that will increase their knowledge of specific scientific fields and assist in developing and refining their skills in research, writing and communication.

Faculty in science communication come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds such as literature, history, and environmental studies. All science communication students will work with John Horgan, who writes for Scientific American, the BBC, and other major media outlets. Horgan also directs the Center for Science Writings at Stevens, which sponsors talks by famous authors.
