Course Profiles

We asked each participant in the 2007 Workshop on Connecting Geoscience Departments to the Future of Science: New Structures for Research and Curriculum to describe a course, a curriculum, or a program in their department. Because of the focus of the workshop on the future of science, we asked them to choose a course, curriculum or program that connects to the future of science. For example, such courses, curricula, or programs might be interdisciplinary, focus on societally relevant applications of geoscience, feature an emerging topic or field of study, or develop skills that are becoming increasingly important in geoscience research. The course profiles listed below are based on the information they submitted. If you would like to contribute a course to this collection, please fill in the Course Submission Form.
