BIOL 316 - Comparative Sustainability


Credit(s): 3
Lecture: 2
Non-Lecture: 3
This course will allow students to come face-to-face with the particular biodiversity, water, energy, food, and health issues of a non-North American, non-industrialized country, and compare them to similar issues in the U.S. The hybrid, online, study abroad course provides the opportunity to understand sustainability issues in the U.S. and study background material about Nicaragua’s environmental sustainability situation for a week before departure. Two weeks in Nicaragua will provide immersion in the issues particular to that place, followed by a wrap-up week of online classes, discussions, and reports. This offers our students unique perspective from which they can deeply examine global sustainability issues. Offered only during the summer session.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 119  or ENVR 124
