Subject: Unique Short Term Study Abroad PWP Science Writing Class for Science
Majors

Description:
Do you enjoy writing? Do you want to expand your writing skills to reach
broader audiences on issues of scientific and  significance? Using
storytelling techniques and topics that relate to science and sustainability,
you will broaden your writing skills. Meeting with scientists, activists,
writers, journalists and others, you will use Ireland as your living
laboratory to gather information to write about scientific issues of local
and global importance. While in Ireland, the class will also study the Irish
affinity for storytelling and adapt it to our own work. We will use fiction
and creative non-fiction texts to enhance our cultural understanding and
interpretation of Ireland.  Students will keep a journal for daily reflective
writing and as source material for their work. Major assignments include a
blog post, a scientific article/text and a science/personal essay. This
course satisfies both the University's Fundamental Studies requirement in
professional writing and a course requirement for the sustainability minor.
