There has never been a more pressing time to study the intersection of environmental change and social equity to learn how you can make a difference! Topics span from resilient water infrastructure to climate activism and environmental justice.
Students will apply an interdisciplinary case-study approach to the social, ecological, and political facets of contemporary environmental issues; learn the principles and key concepts of environmental change and resilience from experts in many fields; and gain knowledge of techniques for environmental data collection, analysis and visualization. Working in small teams, students will identify a socio-environmental research question, gather and analyze data on the subject, and synthesize their findings into a college-level capstone project.
