T.C. 5206 - Communicating Environmental & Health Risk

3 credits (Hrs: 3 Lec.)
Both corporations and the government find it necessary to manage environmental and human health risk. Developing risk communication is a blend of communication and technical strategies that incorporate an understanding of public perception and an appreciation for public influence. Problems such as global climate change or toxic chemicals in the environment, as well as radon in the home and workplace, underscore the importance of environmental and human health risk communication. Students will learn to consult with technical experts and the public, promote public awareness, create documents and other mediums of communication, and develop emergency and crisis response plans.

Prerequisite(s): WRIT 322W  or WRIT 321W .
