Started in the Fall of 2017, the Climate Change Pathway examines the multifaceted effects of climate change and its relationship to history, human rights, and ethics.
Climate Change is the crisis of our age, and today’s students are taking the lead in addressing this threat head-on. In order to combat climate change, students must have the deepest understanding possible of this intersectional and complex issue. Not only is it an issue of carbon levels, but also a question of equity, political will, historical contexts, imagination, and lifestyle. This pathway will address Climate Change from the perspectives of science, history, philosophy, ethics, and writing to deepen students’ understanding of this issue that affects the entire world, and will only continue to grow in importance in the coming years.
