FYS 032 What is a River?

This course is an exploration of rivers, and in particular the Delaware River, as critical to the development of society, culture, and the identity of the regions they connect. Through a variety of texts and experiences, including a float trip on the Delaware, students will come to understand the role of rivers in human endeavors and in the natural environment. Students will synthesize their ideas in a case focusing on their river of choice.
