The Yale Environment Review is a student-run publication that aims to increase access to the latest developments in environmental studies. We aim to shed light on cutting-edge environmental research through summaries, analysis, and interviews. During this one-credit course, students will produce 1-2 articles on subjects of their choosing for publication on the YER website. Please refer to our Canvas page for an overview of the different types of content that YER produces.
Students will receive coaching to improve their writing skills and their work will go through a rigorous editing process. Participation in Yale Environment Review helps students sharpen their writing skills, familiarize themselves with science communication, and provides a platform to showcase their expertise. 
Enrollment in YER is limited to 16 and the class will be selected through an application process. Application instructions can be found on our Canvas page and will be discussed during the information session on January 16. Applications are due by January 21 at 11:59 p.m. Please email environment.review@yale.edu with any questions.
*Class meets five to six times throughout the semester, dates TBA. An information session will be held on Thursday, January 16 from 12 - 12:50 in Sage 41C.*
