SUS 202: Topics in Sustainability
General Education requirement: Ethics/Global Awareness
Multi-disciplinary introduction to /sustainability/, defined as balancing present human needs and desires against the future's capacity to support human needs and desires. Mixed faculty from Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Nursing, and Visual and Performing Arts will explore current and alternative social systems within a single theme, thereby demonstrating the interrelationships between natural and social systems. Topics will change depending on faculty, but will include such interests as food, energy, biodiversity, biotechnology, economic development and environmental stewardship, public health, business and law, representations of culture, technology, and/or nature in literature and art and climate change. Students from all majors welcome.
