Dear GEOG majors,
There are a lot of exciting classes being offered in the Spring that you might want to consider for your degree, some of which are special topics or are otherwise not in the catalogue. Please consider taking some of these amazing environmentally- and spatially-relevant courses!
I compiled a list, below, of all the courses that could apply to your degree, as the course description focuses in whole or in significant part on environmental issues. Please ask your advisor to approve the substitution for you, to have any of these "count" toward your degree. Depending on the level of the course, it could apply in one of your major subfields or as a breadth. Talk with your advisor about how best to fit the class into your course plan, and feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
Here is a list of courses that COULD fit into the GEOG degrees that are NOT listed as options in the catalogue:
COMM 418: Landscape and the Moving Image (Guschwan)
ENVS 493: Climate and Earth System (Amundson)
GEOL 293: Earth's Natural Hazards (Connor and Hekkers-lab)
ALST 300: Alaska Studies (Pennington)
ANTH 393: SE Alaska and the Natural World (Twitchell)
ANTH 351: Anthropology of Globalization (Hill)
HIST 492: Immigration and Ethnicity in American History (Radzilowski)
ANTH 314: Archaeology of SE Alaska (Monteith)
*********ALSO Another course has been added to UAOnline but isn't in the printed schedule.*******
Environmental Interpretation is an interactive, project oriented class. You will learn the principles of interpretation and then apply them as you design an interpretive product related to the Mendenhall Glacier area. Depending on the specific project, the finished product may be used by the staff of the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center and local guiding companies to educate visitors to Juneau.
