I only expected to learn the basics, but this class went above & beyond. Each lecture focused on the meteorological, geographical, economical, & sociological aspects of different natural disasters. I now understand (in great detail) the science behind disasters, I know how to spot the potential threats, & I'm aware of how to prepare for/avoid disasters. The only part of the course that I wasn't a huge fan of was the peer assessment portion of the final project - I'm not sure that they were best suited for grading responsibilities, but as long as the rest of the coursework is completed, even a poor peer assessment won't mess up your grade that much. Overall, it was a great class & I hope that they create an advanced lecture series in addition to this first class!
