ENV 216 - Natural Disasters and Catastrophes

A survey of Earth’s surface processes, the course examines the causes, locations, and effects of natural and man-made hazards through scientific inquiry and investigation.  A focus on mitigation strategies is an important component of this course.  Understanding natural hazards as natural processes fosters civic literacy locally, nationally, and globally.  Satisfies the Global Issues General Education requirement.
