Become a Professional Environmental Journalist

Do you have an understanding of scientific language and practice, knowledge of historical environmental events, the ability to keep abreast of environmental policy decisions and the work of environmental organizations, a general understanding of current environmental concerns, and the ability to communicate all of that information to the public in such a way that it can be easily understood, despite its complexity? Do you want to collect, verify, produce, and distribute information regarding current events, trends, issues and people that are associated with the non-human world with which humans necessarily interact? In this environmental journalism online course at Bly School of Journalism, you’ll learn all the tools you need to work as a professional environmental journalist, especially doing thorough investigations and writing well-structured and well-drafted texts. Take a closer look at the course syllabus below.
