The doctoral minor in life sciences communication is a course-based minor (10 credits) for students enrolled in other Ph.D. programs who would like to supplement their existing Ph.D. coursework with a minor in science communication. It is particularly valuable for graduate students in the natural and physical sciences or in engineering who are interested in the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of emerging technologies, or in communication and public attitudes about science and technology. More information may be found on the department website.

Faculty: Professors Brossard (chair), Loew, Meiller, Reaves, Scheufele (director of graduate studies); Associate Professors Shaw, Shepard; Assistant Professor Stenhouse
