ENVS 304 Energy and the Environment: Iceland 3.0 Credits
This course studies how an economy and culture changes when it switches from fossil to alternative energy. In the last 30 years Iceland has switched from a poor country fueled by fossil fuels to one of the wealthiest nations in Europe, with only 20 percent of its energy coming from fossil fuels. In this class students will synthesize data/knowledge into flow diagrams of the economy of Iceland and then use the synthesis to understand the impacts of energy development and extraction on the environment and society.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
