Science Journalism Master Classes


The Open Notebook's Science Journalism Master Classes allow students to learn key science writing skills remotely and asynchronously. (Lessons are delivered to the student's email either daily or weekly after they sign up.) The courses were developed in collaboration with Emily Laber-Warren, who heads the Health and Science Reporting program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, and also incorporate insights from hundreds of TON articles. The Master Classes are free, thanks to a generous grant from The Kavli Foundation. As of spring 2023, the courses include: "How to Find an Angle for Any Science Story," "How to Pitch Science Stories That Sell," "How to Spot Scientific Hype and Misinformation," and "How to Ace the Study Story."
