Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some changes have been made to the course delivery. Lectures which were scheduled to be on-site have been moved to an interactive online format. Skills laboratories are conducted on-site following strict social distancing standards, and require facial coverings consistent with the guidelines for the County of Los Angeles. Students are asked to only attend class if they are healthy and students will complete a UCLA Health Symptom Survey for each day they are on-site. Field ride alongs have been suspended during the pandemic, however content provided during the course will make up for this requirement until it is safe to return to the field. We will continue to update our website for prospective students.  Students who are enrolled in a course will receive updates via email from the Center and their course instructor.
