The Master of Arts in Science Writing is a flexible, part-time program of online classes and face-to-face residencies, infused with the prestige, quality, and value of Johns Hopkins University.
The innovative Hopkins degree is based on the belief that today's successful science writers require a working knowledge of diverse skills, from journalism and communication to multimedia and the literary arts. Students focus first on journalistic and creative writing as well as editing techniques to craft enticing, understandable prose for digital or print venues.
Throughout the program, students acquire effective communication skills and develop multimedia expertise to thrive in the ever-changing digital universe. All Hopkins writers and editors are challenged to monitor science itself, to disclose how research can falter, mislead, or be misused. The MA in Science Writing is part of the prestigious Advanced Academic Programs at Hopkins, a division that focuses on graduate credentials for working adults.
