What does hybrid mean?  That's a course that partially in the classroom and partially online.  The New Hybrid Course is
EES 201 Global Climate Change and it starts on July 12.  This course will be on Monday evenings and online Wednesdays and Fridays.

What better time to study Global Climate Change than this summer!!

In the last 50 years the temperature and the composition of the Earth's atmosphere has changed, likely due to human activity. These changes affect our lives, the natural world and the global economy.  Can we effectively meet the challenges presented by natural and anthropogenic ("manmade") climate change? Can  we overcome them and even benefit from these changes How does the  history of climate change help us to understand the future? What was the cause of dinosaurs' extinction and Vikings' decay? These and many other questions will be discussed in this extremely dynamic class. You will be watching videos and developing skills in critical thinking, reading for comprehension, and oral and written communication. Welcome to the "Global Climate Change" summer class.


Register now for this exciting course that delves into the changes of our planet! For more information, visit or call
