The goal of the Alda Center’s Science Communication Workshops is to help participants learn to communicate more effectively with people outside their scientific field.
The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science works to enhance understanding of science by helping train the next generation of scientists and health professionals to communicate more effectively with the public.
Master’s and PhD students from all fields of science, engineering and the health professions are welcome to enroll in science communication courses offered by the Stony Brook University School of Journalism.
