Climate change, the depletion of the world's resources, and the collapse of fisheries are but a few of the examples illustrating the global scale of our environmental problems. These global issues, however, have local causes and consequences. This course reviews the issues and identifies possible solutions, and then focuses on student research projects that identify local pathways to address these environmental challenges. Special attention will be given to the methodology and writing of a geographical research paper.
