Through travel to distant field sites, students will be immersed in the environmental issues of a particular coastal location. Environmental topics will be studied within the framework of the natural, historical, social and cultural milieu found in the locale visited. Students will be involved in fieldwork, readings and discussions with local constituencies to develop a holistic view of the development, impacts and possible avenues of resolution for contemporary coastal environmental issues. This course is offered as part of the Coastal Studies minor.
