Section Description

As we move deeper into the 21st century, one thing seems certain: the state of the world is uncertain. Whether it be climate change, biodiversity loss, forest fires, food insecurity, etc., it is clear society faces numerous challenges that threaten to undermine human health and well-being. In this course we examine the roots of these challenges, focusing primarily on climate change and biodiversity loss. In particular, we ask questions about how these two crises came to be, how they are connected, and how we might respond to them in just, equitable, and courageous ways. This course offers an introduction to key concepts in the disciplines of geography and environmental studies. Course materials reflect a range of concerns related to climate change and biodiversity as well as diverse approaches to understanding them. Instruction will be interactive, discussion-based, and will draw on environmental data and creative concepts to strategize how to face forward and build better futures.


Students will be assessed via short reflection essays (2), journals, participation, and a collaborative project.
