SSC 418 Environmental Problems

Dr. Craig Thomas

Focuses on understanding and dealing with complex, 21st-century socio-ecological problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, exponential population growth, diminishing water sources, homogenized agricultural systems, depleting rain forests, non-point source pollution, the irreversible conversion of environmental resources into disposable commodities, and more. Emphasizes the role of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities in solving these local-to-global environmental issues.
