Greetings to all as spring semester begins.
Fall-semester highlights for the STJR program included the
- Roma Subramanian very successfully defended her master's
thesis. The topic was best practices of journalists winning awards
for mental-health reporting.
- The front page of the Texas A&M student newspaper
repeatedly featured science stories by first-year student Jessica
- Students Katie Cowart and Christina Sumners and graduate
Kristina Twigg helped cover an ecosystem conference in California,
through scholarships from the National Academies Keck Futures
As spring semester begins, Subramanian has entered the
journalism doctoral program at the University of Missouri. Cowart
has begun an internship at the journal Emerging Infectious
Diseases, in Atlanta. Recent graduate George Hale has headed
to the Washington, DC, area, to begin a job in public outreach for
the NASA IceBridge mission.
In February, four students in the program plan to attend the
American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting,
to be held in Vancouver, Canada. Over spring break, a student and a
recent graduate are to take part in a meeting in England, through
their assistantship work for the AuthorAID project.
Applications for the fall 2012 entering class are now arriving.
Each candidate should remember to submit a resume or curriculum
