FYS 111 - Introduction to Environmental Communication

This course is designed to provide students with foundations in effective oral communication and will aid in student’s understanding and development in stating, organizing and researching ideas, and presenting them to an audience. In addition, this course will provide a common transition experience for entering students introducing them to the CSUMB Vision and engaging them with a sense of belonging to the CSUMB student and academic community. The seminar style format will allow students to speak openly and directly to both the instructor and each other during every class session throughout the semester. Through this process, students will strengthen the faculties of active and critical listening abilities and problem solve about topics in environmental and marine science, as well as deepen their understanding of their goals as they develop their intended pathway while at CSUMB.
