This seminar will discuss 1) how to do academic research which accomplishes social change and 2) how to increase the impact of academic research by writing about findings to a mass audience and to policymakers. Each week, we will spend one lecture discussing academic papers which accomplished social change and one lecture discussing writing for a mass audience. The seminar will feature guest lecturers from academia and journalism, and students will work on a final writing project which communicates research findings to a mass audience.

Outcome 1: Students will learn how to conduct academic research that influences policy or creates social change.

Outcome 2: Students will learn how to communicate findings to a mass audience.
