Students in this course will focus on interactions between humans and the geosphere. Students will develop an understanding of a broad range of natural and human-induced geohazards, from earthquakes and tsunamis to industrial pollution and anthropogenic climate change. Regional examples will be emphasized, such environmental industrial contamination and remediation efforts in the Delaware Valley and hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in Pennsylvania.

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
