Friedman, Sharon M.; And Others
This publication lists, by state, those science communication courses and programs that appear to teach science communication for general audiences. Institutions offering science communication courses or programs are identified and the courses or programs are described. Information given in description of the courses or programs includes: (1) title; (2) enrollment; (3) predominant majors enrolled; (4) average number of students; (5) instructor; and (6) course or program focus and scope. Each person or program listed received a questionnaire seeking information about those six items. No attempt was made to seek evaluative information. The Directory lists 34 programs and 105 courses in 58 colleges and universities. Ten programs offer master's degrees and three offer doctorates. About 45 courses teach straight-forward science writing. Nine schools also offer science writing internships. (MR)
