America's most famous journalism school has teamed up with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory to try to improve science communication. This fall, Columbia University combined two of its greatest assets—Lamont-Doherty and the Columbia School of Journalism—to offer a joint degree program for would-be writers to specialize in Earth and environmental science.
“Science journalists are translators between those with the knowledge and those with the need to know,” said Kenneth Goldstein, a professor of journalism at Columbia. “The new Earth and environmental sciences journalism program seeks to produce students who are fluently bilingual in the language of Earth science and the language of public debate.”
