Teaching

As a professor, Charles Seife teaches both graduate and undergraduate students at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. His undergraduate courses stress writing, reporting, journalism, and current issues in science. Many of his graduate courses are intended to give students mathematical tools—and analytical ways of thinking—that will help them become more sophisticated journalists. Seife is also the Institute's Director of Undergraduate Studies and Director of Graduate Enrollment.

Seife typically teaches such courses as "Investigative Reporting and Data Journalism" and "Science Literacy and Numeracy [PDF]." He will be on sabbatical during the spring 2014 semester.
