AOSS 480 — Climate Change: Move to Action
- Instructor: Richard B Rood
Prerequisite: Senior or graduate standing, Math 216 (3 credits)
This course explores the intersections of the science of climate change with society: policy, business, economics, public health, energy, ecosystems, environmental engineering, information science, journalism, religion, etc. The problem is approached from the perspective that there are communities with heterogeneous interests that are vested in both adapting to and mitigating climate change. The course will expose students to the fundamental factual and contextual elements surrounding climate change in order to facilitate effective participation in the response to realized and predicted climate change. The students will work in multi-disciplinary teams on projects to analyze current real-world problems and to develop strategies to address those problems.
