Public Understanding of Science

Scientists who study our species’ evolutionary history have a responsibility to communicate their findings to the public. CASHP's Human Paleobiology graduate program prepares students to contribute to the public’s understanding of science through internships at outlets such as museums, TV, news, the internet, and schools.

CASHP graduate students have helped produce ratio stories for National Public Radio, published educational articles for the National Geographic website, developed public initiatives on the understanding of race and human variation with the American Association of Anthropologists, and much more.
