F&ES 601a / 2018-2019

Perspectives: The Anthropocene

Credits: 3
Fall 2018: M, 12:00-1:00, Burke
 

 
Schedule will also include Friday Discussion sessions

The course is intended to offer a common experience and exposure to the variety of perspectives represented by F&ES faculty and staff on the challenges and opportunities of environmental management. The theme for the inaugural offering is “The Anthropocene.” Humans are now drivers of environmental change on a scale that is unique in Earth’s history. Human-driven biological, chemical, and physical changes to the Earth’s system are so great, rapid, and distinct that they may characterize an entirely new epoch—the Anthropocene.
