Class Details

The Environmental Studies and Maritime Studies programs provide students with an opportunity to explore how humans interact with diverse environments at scales ranging from local to global. This discussion-based seminar course is designed to facilitate student explorations of complex environmental issues from a variety of perspectives, thereby appreciating that many environmental problems lack distinct, sharp-edged boundaries. Students, after exploring their own environmental values and biases, will analyze a complex environmental issue of their choice through a series of papers written from social science, humanities, and natural science perspectives. This process will lead to a final synthesis paper (in lieu of final exam) in which the students must present their own integrated perspectives and defend them in a presentation to the class.
