The Scope
The Scope showcases student-produced news articles about research and researchers at VCU. The stories have been conceived and written by students in MASC 491-005 (Science Journalism), a course taught during the Fall 2016 semester by Sara Williams, head of academic outreach at VCU Libraries, and Jeff South, an associate professor in the Robertson School of Media and Culture. The Scope has been funded by a VCU Quest for Distinction Innovative Programs Grant.
