“Science Communication Graduate Program – Directed by Erika Check Hayden”

My poster features a few of the articles I’ve published this year with the SciComm program. These clips are available on my website and are indicative of the type and breadth of work we do in this program. I’ve included pieces I wrote for Stanford News this past fall and more recently, the Monterey Herald, a feature story for the Mercury News, an article about migratory birds for Mongabay and one on earthquakes for Eos.


The UCSC SciComm program teaches students with a background in science how to communicate research to general audiences. We learn how to translate technical material into accessible writing, audio, video and data and pair coursework with internships at national publications and community outlets.
