How is scientific evidence constructed? How can we determine “good” science from “bad” science? How is science presented in different media? These questions will be addressed through critical analysis of modern and historical case studies exploring the interaction between science and media.
This course is only available to students registered in Programme Years 1 and 2. Attendance at sixth century courses is compulsory. Students who do not attend all classes (including lectures) for a sixth century course, without exceptional cause, will not pass the engagement component of the course and will therefore fail the course.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
