Religion, Journalism and the
Spiritual Life, Columbia
Religion touches lives. The Scripps Howard Program in
Religion, Journalism and the Spiritual Life at
Graduate School of Journalism helps
journalists write about religion for a diverse readership. Professor Ari Goldman, former religion reporter for The New York Times, teaches the
“Covering Religion” class. This year's course looked at different religions today through a case study of how religion is evolving in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, with each student researching a specific faith or denomination and reporting to the class on what he or she has learned.

Scripps Howard Institute on
the Environment, Florida Atlantic University
In 2009, experienced
journalists were immersed in the “environment” during a weeklong
Scripps Howard Foundation Institute on the Environment held
Florida Atlantic University’s
School of Communication and Multimedia Studies and Center for Environmental Studies.
The institute is headed by
environment reporter-turned professor Neil Santaniello. Journalists took a hike through Everglades National Park; saw the effect of a severe drought on Lake Okeechobee, took a canoe ride on the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River, searched for nesting loggerhead sea turtles on a moonlit beach, and more. In class, they spent time with both Florida and national environmental experts, and heard veteran journalists talk about new media and environmental reporting, science-writing and emerging issues on the environment beat.
