Global Health Storytelling
COM JO 539 section A1
Global Health Storytelling is an interdisciplinary class for journalism and public health students who have a passionate interest in crafting rich, nuanced, compelling narratives about global health for a broad audience. This is a class for public health students who want to communicate public health science, practice, and policies in the style of an Atlantic Monthly article, a New York Times feature, or an NPR audio story. Likewise, it is a class for journalism or other communication-focused students interested in building public health knowledge. Students will learn from global health and journalism professors, guest speakers, and one another through classroom discussion and individual reporting projects. Students will complete original reporting projects based in Boston or MA but with a local /global angle. COM and SPH students who take this course will be eligible to apply for the prestigious BU Pulitzer Center Student Fellowship.
