Exploring and writing about the everchanging coast of North Carolina

Hard science and creative writing combine in a Carolina course that explores one of the state’s most magnificent treasures.

Distinguished professors Bland Simpson and Brent McKee combine their expertise in creative writing and marine sciences, respectively, to inspire a generation of students to clearly communicate about environmental issues.
