George Mason University’s Science Communication Program is a hub of cutting-edge research and graduate education centered on science communication theory and practice. We examine how effective communication shapes interest, attitudes, discourse, and engagement toward a host of contentious science issues and among a variety of stakeholders. We pursue these goals through

  • Impactful research that applies science communication theory and best practices to ongoing science controversies.



  • Rewarding career opportunities within and outside of academia that reflects our location in the Washington, DC region.
