Course Profiles

We asked each participant in the 2007 Workshop to describe a course, a curriculum, or a program in their department 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.

Quantitative Natural Hazards, Bryn Mawr
