In Spring 2023, English 721/Advanced Reporting will focus on the issue of Climate Change and its impacts right here in New Hampshire. Students will have a chance to work in a real-world newsroom environment, producing original, in-depth work that could be a strong part of a personal portfolio. Students will work closely in a group to study the issue, and to produce robust journalism that may be published statewide through collaboration with the Granite State News Collaborative. Students should have curiosity about the science of climate change, and its impacts locally and globally. Student reporting will focus on solutions to the problems at hand - how to mitigate the risks of climate change, and adapt to the realities it will bring.

ENGL 721 may be taken for Capstone credit by general English majors if all pre-requisites have been met. Pick up a Capstone Declaration Form in the main English office (HS 230F) if interested.
