|Title||Applied Environmental Geophysics|
|Prerequisites||GLS100 and PHS211 or permission of Department Chairperson|
This course examines the theory and practice of geophysical methods currently used to help solve environmental problems. Methods include seismic refraction and reflection, gravity, magnetic, electrical resistivity, electromagnetic, ground-penetrating radar, and radioactivity surveys (Radon). A research paper, case analysis, or individual field project, and a brief presentation are also required.
The course will examine the complex issues of child violence and victimization. Current theory and practice will be highlighted. The intervention process will be identified including the legal, medical and human service responses as they relate to schools. The protective function of the schools will be explored. Particular emphasis will be placed on investigating the impact of various forms of violence on the teaching/learning environment. Program strategies for each level of the prevention continuum will be identified.
