Program Description:

The Science Writing program at UCSC has been producing professionally trained science writers since 1982. The program is an academic year long, plus a full time 10-week internship. It is the only graduate science writing program in the nation that requires significant previous science training. It is aimed at people who want to write for the public about science rather than about general breaking news. The Science Illustration Program is now offered through UCSC Extension.
