It is part of the three-term core sequence in Environmental Studies and is required for Environmental Studies, but not Environmental Science majors. It is an introductory survey course, designed for freshmen and sophomores, and satisfies university general education breadth requirements for natural sciences.

ENVS 410/ 510, Winter 2018, Fall 2020 (online)

This course covers the non-statistical aspects of the data life cycle, including how to store, clean, visualize and communicate data. It is intended as a complement to statistics courses - we cover how to get your data into shape for analysis, and how to communicate your findings visually. It is primarily a methods class and is taught in R (but there is no expectation that students know R coming in). It fulfills the “Analytical Approaches” requirement for Environmental Studies majors. Original course materials are available on Github here, more recent are available here.
