Geography Of Global Change


Geography of Global Change (GGC) is an all-encompassing (global) course designed to consider critically many aspects of environmental threat today, most especially climate change. The course begins with basic principles by which all topics need to be evaluated, including spatial and temporal scales, principles of “change”, and much more.  

We then proceed with distinct impacts spheres of the Earth, including the atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces. Special attention will be applied to the oceans given the particular importance of this realm on our blue planet Earth.  

Two field trips will occur in the GGC course, including to Barcelona to discuss many aspects of urban global change, and to an on-campus research institute for environmental sciences, in a very unique and relatively new building installation.  

Courses generally have little or no prerequisite knowledge required for a given topic, however if students face any doubts, we recommend they contact course professors to clarify.
