Course Description

This class will introduce you to both the history and present reality of global poverty and climate change and the new opportunities to address inequities. In this class, we will work together to learn how different professions and backgrounds can contribute to solving these global challenges.

We will also build skills together, including how to read academic literature, critique theories of global development, and conduct basic data analysis with geospatial and statistical tools.
