The science of stories. The stories of science.

We connect people with science to inspire wonder, nurture greater understanding of the natural world, and empower meaningful action to address society’s greatest challenges.

In addition to teaching creative thinkers how to use stories to communicate the science they are most passionate about, our staff and students conduct high-quality academic research that contributes to the emerging discipline of science communication.

Our graduates are well-connected with industry professionals and leave equipped with an advanced job-ready skillset as well as a deep theoretical understanding of our field.
