Program Description:

The Graduate Certificate in Science Writing is a flexible, part-time program of online classes, infused with the prestige, quality and value of Johns Hopkins University. The innovative Hopkins Certificate is based on the belief that today’s successful science writers require a working knowledge of diverse skills, from journalism and communication to multimedia and the literary arts. Students focus first on journalistic and creative writing and editing techniques to craft enticing, understandable prose for digital or print venues, from magazines and books to social media and websites for companies, associations, agencies or others. Along the way, students may choose to acquire communication skills to promote viewpoints or write for clients, and they develop multimedia expertise to thrive in the ever-changing digital universe. All Hopkins writers and editors also are challenged to monitor science itself, to disclose how research can falter, mislead, or be misused.
