Stanford students: Do you love science but are eager for more creative opportunities to write and speak about it? Do you want to learn how to communicate technical information while also speaking in your own voice, language, and culture? Do you want to meet peers passionate about sharing all kinds of science with diverse audiences?

Then apply to join the Notation in Science Communication, a mini-minor designed to help you develop effective practices for communicating your scientific research to a wide range of audiences – all while completing your work in your major!  

The Notation only requires 13-15 units of coursework and provides you with the opportunity to create an electronic portfolio as a capstone, showcasing your work in science communication. As an NSC student you will have the opportunity to explore a range of modes of science communication including podcasting, storytelling, data visualization, and more.

When potential employers or graduate programs see that you have completed a Notation in Science Communication, they will know that you have documented expertise in communicating knowledge to other scientists and to wider public audiences.

It’s impressive to do great research …

It’s even more impressive to be able to share that research effectively across media and with different audiences!
