EA 052 PZ -Environmental Science, Policy, & Politics
Description: There is a growing need for scientists and policy makers to communicate, collaborate, and translate scientific findings into viable policies and larger political action in the face of national and international gridlock on pressing environmental problems. This course seeks to bring together students concerned about the environment to engage in collaborate problem solving around contemporary environmental problems.
To this end, this transdisciplinary course will engage students in connecting science with policy and politics to address a range of critical environmental problems. Topics include greenhouse gases, water availability in dry regions, and air quality. Class will be a combination of lectures, discussions, and case studies. The course will include a team-based research paper proposing a solution to an environmental problem and a group project presentation to the class.
