Combining Carolina Courses

Exploring and writing about the everchanging coast of North Carolina

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.

A College of Arts & Sciences course, called “The Changing Coasts of Carolina,” aims to close that gap. 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.

Additionally, the course offers students the opportunity to explore, first-hand, the coast of North Carolina. 

“Nothing can replace that experience of going and seeing what you want to write about,” said Blythe Gulley, a senior English and comparative literature major.
