The program offers the opportunity to explore contemporary issues such as climate change, air quality, water use, waste management, energy consumption, and building resilience in our cities while gaining an understanding of the complex cultural, economic, and political factors that influence environmental policymaking. Classes will be taught through a combination of classroom learning and field studies.
