EARTHSYS 290: Master's Seminar

Required of and open only to Earth Systems co-terminal MS and MA students. This course has several elements, including, skill building through experiential learning and reflection and professional development. Students will work in teams with a community partner to complete a well-defined, manageable, but important project. Our community partners have requested help with achieving their missions and seminar students will utilize their backgrounds in social/environmental problem solving to deliver a final product. Our partners have requested help with such efforts as grant writing, data analysis, curriculum development, symposium organizing, presentation research and preparation and communications to raise awareness about an environmental challenge. Students will also explore how best to communicate their interdisciplinary skills and goals through their resumes, cv¿s or cover letters, portfolios or linkedIn profiles in preparation for the next phase of their career. Guest speakers and an in class simulation will complement these activities.

EARTHSYS 298: Seminar on Philosophy, Politics, and the Environment (EARTHSYS 198)

Much public discourse that touches upon the relationship of human society to the natural environment acknowledges the fundamental connection between people and the environment, but avoids or simplifies discussion of broader philosophical and political views of what this relationship is, has been, and ought to be. Expansive conceptual categories of the study of politics, economics, and society, such as capitalism, socialism, democracy, human welfare, and distribution, are often left out entirely, or used quickly and not defined clearly. In thinking big about human society and the natural world, what is ideal, and what is possible? This once-weekly seminar aims to help students develop the breadth and depth of their thinking about the relationship of human society to nature at the level of political, social, and economic philosophy. It will provide an organized setting for the understanding and critical discussion of these abstract but sometimes world-shaping ideas. Particular attention will be paid to the wide range of such views put forth in recent history, the various assumptions built into each view, and to the differing levels of influence and political effectiveness achieved by each. Discussions will be based on a weekly reading from a philosophically oriented work about humanity and the environment, such as a book chapter or a piece of long-form journalism. Grading/credit based on weekly participation and a short reflective paper.
