The City: Geog 2720

GEOG 1600:  Climate Change: Science and Public Policy

     Section 1: TuTh 2-3:15 p.m., Naka Hall 116

While Covid-19 has been in the forefront of news over the past six months or so, and rightly so, climate change has taken a back seat in the public mind. But it has not lost its importance. Scientists and geographers continue to study how climate change is affecting the world as we know it and impacting our lives as well as those of future generations. Be in the know! Understand climate change through facts, not gut. Sign up soon before it fills up. Great class for incoming freshmen or transfer students.

Do you like to travel? Have you dreamed of visiting big cities in the U.S. and abroad? Do you want to understand urban hierarchies and how cities are developed? This truly metropolitan class discusses everything “city,” from the economic and environmental to the social and cultural. It’s informative, exciting – and stretches the imagination. Bonus: it meets the social science requirement for Gen Ed. Great instructor!

If you are not a geographer, you may not understand Geographic Information Systems (GIS), but it’s worth looking into as engaging hands-on GIS jobs are in high demand nationally as well as globally. And most provide great income! This course will get you right into the nit and grit of GIS, and will teach you what you can do with a GIS degree or certificate. Computer labs keep the work interesting and fun! Explore something different. While recommended for sophomores, we will open it to freshmen with instructor consent.
