Johns Hopkins: M.A. in science writing


Masters program for science writing and journalism: "We teach the reporting and writing skills required to succeed in the diverse ecosystem of science and medical writing. In core classes, students hone reporting techniques such as interviewing scientists and identifying credible sources. Electives such as Subatomic Writing, Principles of Editing, and Literature of Science help students polish their prose and emulate masters of the craft. In workshops such as Science Narrative and Science Personal Essay & Memoir, students develop tools of creative nonfiction while receiving extensive feedback on their writing." Mostly online, self-paced program includes 9 courses, including one on-site residency. It takes 16-36 months to complete.
