ENVRES 202: Transforming Clean Energy System and the Services They Enable

This project-based course focuses on innovation to accelerate the transformation of energy systems. Students will address challenges at the nexus of energy and water, energy and IT, energy and food, and off-grid services. Teams will develop well-defined problem statements, a thesis and solution pathway, and conduct research toward validating the thesis value propositions. Scoping, analysis and evaluation of proposed solutions can include any combination of technology, policy and business model innovation. Team written reports and presentations are required.
Terms: Win | Units: 2-3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

ENVRES 203: Piloting and Transforming Clean Energy Systems and Services

This project-based course focuses on innovation to accelerate the transformation of energy systems and the services they enable. Students will pilot solutions to challenges at the nexus of energy, water, food, IT and off-grid services. Teams will build on projects from past courses to develop a pilot and hypothesis that can be tested to validate their solution pathway. Scoping, analysis, testing, and evaluation of solutions will drive policy and business model innovation. Team written reports and presentations are required.

ENVRES 220: The Social Ocean: Ocean Conservation, Management, and Policy

This interdisciplinary seminar examines current ocean issues and ideas through a series of readings, discussions, and guest lecturer presentations of seminal works about the complex relationships of human beings to the marine world. Through the lenses offered by several classic readings, we will examine and reinterpret the challenges of fisheries collapse, climate change, shipping, marine spatial planning, biodiversity conservation, and the management of land-sea interactions. Though the seminar is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, our course is designed especially for those with a particular interest in studying and solving key issues of ocean policy and management, from coastal adaption to fisheries management to cumulative impacts assessments. In addition to this interest, students must be willing to take the time to dig deeper into the foundations of environmental thinking about the relationship of human beings and the sea.

ENVRES 230: Field Survey Data Collection & Analysis

In this course we will examine a range of issues related to the collection and analysis of survey data. Topics will include initiating a survey, designing an instrument, conducting enumeration, converting data from questionnaires to digital files, data analysis, empirical modeling and presenting results. Technical components will also be highly focused on application and implementation, and while prior training in econometrics would be useful, it will not be a prerequisite. The course will be tailored so that some of the specific topics covered will be based on the needs and interests of the students.

ENVRES 238: Commercial Agriculture Seminar

Practical survey of the agriculture industry with a focus on the US. Speakers are agricultural practitioners, including executives from commercial farming, agriculture private equity funds, agricultural equipment and seed suppliers, food marketing and retail companies, and novel early-stage ag tech companies. By the end, students will have a high-level grasp of real-world agricultural operations from planting, to harvest, to retail sales in the grocery store and obtain a greater understanding/appreciation of the food we eat every day. May be repeated for credit.

ENVRES 240: Environmental Decision-Making and Risk Perception

Mobilizing successful conservation efforts to mitigate climate change and preserve both local and global ecosystems requires a new way of thinking. This course will investigate the barriers to pro-environmental behavior and the heuristics and biases that cloud our ability to respond effectively to environmental problems, using insights from behavioral economics, neuroeconomics, and environmental risk perception. Emphasis on interdisciplinary applications of recent research, and implications for environmental policymaking and persuasive messaging.

ENVRES 250: Environmental Governance (CEE 277C)

This interdisciplinary course presents an overview of environmental governance through an examination of how and why societies manage the relationships between human beings and the natural world. By comparing regulatory, community-based, and incentive-based environmental management systems, we address why certain environmental problems are managed as they are, and what approaches to environmental management are more (or less) successful. Designed for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates with some exposure to both the natural sciences (ecology/environmental chemistry), and the social sciences (anthropology, economics, political science, or sociology). A pre-course incoming survey is required.
Terms: Win, alternate years, not given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

ENVRES 270: Graduate Practicum in Environment and Resources

Opportunity for E-IPER students to pursue areas of specialization in an institutional setting such as a laboratory, clinic, research institute, governmental agency, non-governmental organization, or multilateral organization. Meets US CIS requirements for off-campus employment with endorsement from designated school official.

ENVRES 275: The Practice of Mining and Its Social and Environmental Context

Seminar focused on one of the world's oldest industries: mining. Mining is a major industrial process that underpins the provision of many of the resources that we use in our daily lives; it is also a process that has defined landscapes and communities in sometimes positive and often negative ways. Mining is often neglected in balanced discussions of resource use and sustainability, and this course aims to give students context to help ensure that its lessons are not forgotten.
