|Certificates: Environmental Studies|
If you listen to, watch, or read environmental news and would like some history or perspective...If you would like some sense of where environmental law and policy may be going...and if you are prepared for a class which is as much about the open issues as the answers, then Environmental Law and Policy is for you. This course is taught using the Socratic (highly interactive) method and culminates in student run hearings in which you will prepare, present, and argue about issues from what is a "water" of the U.S. to recycling and reclamation to what is solid and hazardous waste?
