When building bridges between science and society, academic language does not suffice. In the writing clinic that was designed for the Honours College FSW, you will learn to present complicated content in journalistic genres aimed at a wider audience.
In this clinic, you will select topics that are related to your theme. You will explore a variety of journalistic genres by writing an opinion article, an online news item, an interview and a background story. You are offered the possibility to develop your interviewing skills and contribute to editing your peers’ background stories.
The writing clinic adds a number of important skills to your competencies as Honours student: observing carefully and listen critically, choosing an interesting and creative angle for your story, telling a story in a clear and compelling way – keeping in mind the perspective of your audience.
