Academic Term and Year
Your instructor is engaged in a three-year examination of the Mississippi River and will be on and off the river while this course is in progress. You will be challenged to examine a river near you and compare it with the major river systems of the world. This course is an examination of the natural dynamics of the river, the influence of the human history and culture, and the impacts of human society on the river. We will go from the source to the mouth, from side to side across the river, and in the end, you will have the basis for your own interpretation or classroom investigation of the river and its components. While the course is online you will be expected to visit your river, look at maps, and do some investigations in your own area.
