Environmental Communication: Research into Practice

Monday, January 7, 2019


This course explores how the most relevant research and theory from communication, psychology, sociology, and political science can be used to improve the practice of science, sustainability and environmental communication. Participants get an overview of the field as we examine how language, images, narratives, values, frames and media come together in advocacy and social marketing campaigns, and other forms of public participation for environmental protection. We consider how communication is used to accomplish practical goals, as well as how it affects people's beliefs about nature and environmental affairs. To do this we use readings, examples, cases, recorded lectures, discussions, and the insights of leaders in the field. Participants have the opportunity to work on communication projects that are relevant to their specific interests. See full course details online here.

The 10-week course will run January 7 to March 15, 2019.


Th course is held online and can be attended live online, or recardings can be accessed after the class.
