Comm 1901: Environmental Communication in England
In this exciting course, enrolled freshmen will learn how environmental messages are communicated, debated, and regulated in both the United States and England. The course will culminate in a trip to England over spring break.
Explore a wide range of media including news, film, science, music, and advertising. From oil company ads to environmental protests, these stories are designed to inform as well as to persuade.
This seminar provides a rare opportunity to learn directly from people who communicate environmental knowledge to the public everyday, including park rangers, journalists, museum docents, and directors of nonprofit organizations. Through this seminar, students will learn how to critically examine these narratives while becoming more effective communicators. For more program information, click here.

This two-credit graduate seminar entitled “The Art of Scientific Presentations” is taught by Professor Scott St. George and will be offered this spring for the first time in two years. It will run for half of the semester (7 weeks) and will be offered again, after the first 7 week session ends, in order to give students more opportunities to fit it into their schedules. The purpose of this seminar is to help students develop the skill of delivering effective and engaging oral presentations, which is a critical skill for scholars in all disciplines.
