Learn about climate with CWC's new course

Aug 12, 2012 - From staff reports

For anyone who wondered why most of the U.S. had record-breaking heat this summer, there's a class at Central Wyoming College for them.

Introduction to Climatology (ATSC 2110) is a new four-credit online science course offered this fall at Central Wyoming College.

Instructed by Dr. Brett McDonald, a doctorate in meteorology, the course studies the Earth's climate by utilizing historic and current environmental data.

McDonald, who has been recognized as a "Master Distance Educator" by the Wyoming Distance Education Consortium, shares his technical expertise with a passion for student learning.

A meteorologist with the National Weather Service, McDonald exposes students to the science of climate including the various processes responsible for defining climate on local, regional and national scales.

Fall classes begin at CWC on Sept. 4 and students can register weekdays up until classes begin.
