Global Changes and Sustainability part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Courses
This is a project-based graduate course that focuses on developing an interdisciplinary perspective of the complex systems of environmental change and the links to society. The students define and complete a collaborative course project related to a local issue that allows them to investigate the many interconnected components of natural-human systems, the impacts of global change on the system, and the role of society in influencing change. The course includes weekly lectures, discussions, "read, think, do" assignments, and culminates with a final report, a website, and a poster session/event to share the project results with the relevant stakeholders.
