ENSC 430 - Human Dimensions of Global Change

4 Credit(s)
From globalization to climate change, natural processes coupled with human activities are fundamentally reshaping Earth systems. Such global change is having far-reaching impacts on humans and the natural world from the Tropics to the Poles. With the rapid rate of change surrounding us, there is a need to better understand the factors driving the dynamics of these large-scale systems and how humans can minimize negative impacts as well as better plan and prepare for global changes. In this course you will engage in activities both within and outside the classroom that require you to evaluate arguments, debate different perspectives, analyze information, and reflect on your learning. Through a group project, you will have the opportunity to design, implement, and assess a climate mitigation and/or adaptation project that you will then connect to international global change debates. Through experiential learning you will deepen your understanding of the human dimensions of global change and you’ll have the tools to critically assess and take action on pressing environmental issues. $100 course fee
