More About The Course
Get ready to take an active role in your future. The Global Climate Change course covers the causes and consequences of global climate change, exploring complex problems that require equally complex solutions. Students will study the biological, geophysical, and social impact of climate change and how it will influence their well-being.
The course covers the history and causes of climate change, how scientists measure and predict climate change, and the opportunities for mitigating and adapting to climate change. Using readings, videos, online discussions and peer interactions, each student will examine an issue that will define the rest of the century.
Global Climate change fulfills several General Education requirements, and will benefit anyone interested in joining a powerful conversation about the causes and effects of Global Climate Change. Please view the 2-minute introductory video created by the professor.
