Adaptations to Global Climate Change Certificate
College: College of Social Sciences & Professional Studies
NEW Fall 2022
The Adaptations to Global Climate Change Certificate gives students a pathway for thinking about their futures under global climate change and to counteract ‘climate anxiety’ through imagining different ways that humans have and could live together in society.
As part of the Geography/Anthropology program, this certificate fits into existing learning outcomes:
- Knowledge: Global Perspective and Individual Accountability: Ability to apply fundamental ANTH/GEOG knowledge in the context of understanding the science of climate change as well as policy issues. Students will get experience in analysis of interrelationships between the environment and human activities.
- Analytical and Technical Skills: Utilizing a variety of methods to gather and analyze data. Here, students will learn to apply their knowledge of climate change and social processes to thinking through strategies for adaptation to transformations of the ecosystems of our planet.
- Synthesize and Communicate: Demonstrate critical thinking skills to solve problems, largely through imagining a future based on what they have learned of the environmental, policy, political and social processes that have brought about climate change.
