Project and position description

I am looking for a few students to collect maps of climate change from major media sources (e.g. New York Times, National Geographic, Fox News, Washington Post) as well as from newer media sources (e.g. Vox, Buzzfeed). We will meet each week to go over collected maps. The goal is to generate a large collection of maps. This is a great opportunity for students to learn more about maps and geography.

Desired qualifications

Ideally qualified applicants would have a 3.6 GPA in their major. All sophomores, juniors, seniors, and super-seniors are welcome to apply! This project will require 45-135 hours of work over the course of the semester, and the successful applicant will earn 1-3 credits for the fall term.

To apply

Prospective candidates should complete the application form at http://www.geog.psu.edu/uroc-apply by 5:00 p.m. on the indicated date. Follow all instructions.
