** available as of 06/30/2021
This course will cover a range of issues in our environment including but not limited to air quality, water quality, mining and gas, and parks and forests. The focus of the class will be on researching, preparing, and revising written assignments on environmental issues. To accomplish this, the class will help students (1) identify environmental issues of interest, (2) organize around a single aspect of the chosen issue, and (3) prepare written assignments that will be reviewed and edited to meet standards of publication (e.g. traditional research paper, a proposal, or long-form journalism).
