Throughout the human history, energy has always been critical for development. However in the 21st century, the energy industry is undergoing a particularly transformational change along three axes- climate change and decarbonization, digitization, and shifting geopolitics of fossil fuels. This course will teach students how to quantitatively analyze the economics and environmental impact of different energy technologies such as coal power, gas power, renewable energy, nuclear power, oil, and electric vehicles. The course will also equip the students with qualitative and quantitative tools for analyzing country/regional energy security, geopolitical trends and scenario development. Finally, the course will inform the students about possible career paths in the private, public, and non-profit sectors as well as provide networking opportunities with Minnesota based energy/environmental professionals.

Over 50% of the global population lives in cities and the rate of urbanization is predicted to increase. As a result, urban centers are expanding and increasingly peri-urban farms are transitioning to outer-ring suburbs. The development of peri-urban farmland is seemingly at odds to maintain human food security for a growing population. This course will explore fundamental linkages and feedbacks between urban and rural land use, ecosystem and human health, and sustainability. To investigate alternate land use outcomes for peri-urban and urban landscapes, we will expand ongoing partnerships with urban and rural partners to investigate the environmental, social, and economic impact of diversifying peri-urban landscapes to increase local and regional ecosystem resiliency. Prerequisites: Completion of any two (2) 300-level BIOL courses or permission of instructor.

Throughout the human history, energy has always been critical for development. However in the 21st century, the energy industry is undergoing a particularly transformational change along three axes- climate change and decarbonization, digitization, and shifting geopolitics of fossil fuels. This course will teach students how to quantitatively analyze the economics and environmental impact of different energy technologies such as coal power, gas power, renewable energy, nuclear power, oil, and electric vehicles. The course will also equip the students with qualitative and quantitative tools for analyzing country/regional energy security, geopolitical trends and scenario development. Finally, the course will inform the students about possible career paths in the private, public, and non-profit sectors as well as provide networking opportunities with Minnesota based energy/environmental professionals.

The Earth's surface is dominated by vast oceans known for the beauty of their wildlife and waters. The oceans are also increasingly recognized for their critical importance to the functioning of the Earth's climate system and for their endangered natural resources. For example, the ocean- atmospheric climate phenomenon known as El Nino Southern Oscillation has gained household name recognition for its global impact on the weather, economy, and public health. In this course we will explore the physical, chemical, and biological processes that characterize the oceans. Students will develop research and analytical skills by making observations and interpretations of oceanographic processes using data, demonstrations, and field experiences. Lecture plus 3 hour lab that meets 1 day/week. Students registering for GEOL 220-01 must also register for GEOL 220-51.

In popular culture and even academic histories, the story of Native North America is too often assumed to have ended with the 1890 Massacre at Wounded Knee. Rather than an ending, this course begins at that pivotal and tragic moment. This course surveys the history of Indigenous people in North America from the end of the nineteenth century to the present and emphasizes methods by which Native communities survived, resisted, and thrived, within the bounds of American colonialism in the modern era. We will address issues and questions such as Native sovereignty, the changing relationship between Native people and the US state, and Native activism in the realms of politics and environmental justice, including the rise of AIM in the mid-twentieth century and the #NODAPL movement in the twenty first.

The primary focus of this course is to investigate how humans interact with their social environments. This is a theory-heavy course focusing on metacognition- training students to think about the way we think. The course provides students with knowledge of theories of the social environments and how they impact, as well as are impacted, by human behavior. Further, theories on human behavior are examined through the multidimensional framework constituting biological, psychological, spiritual, socio-cultural, political, and economic factors. Emphasis is on the role of and interaction between these multiple factors at the level of various systems: the individual, family, small group, organization, community, and society, including political and economic systems. The course consists of five modules: interpersonal relations and empowerment; social systems; political and economic systems; justice; and multiculturalism. The course investigates the multiple dimensions and intersections of diversity including gender, race/ethnicity, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation, nationality, and global and international perspectives. Students leave the class with a holistic understanding of the human experience within the environments that surround them. Prerequisite or concurrent registration: SOWK 281; Prerequisites: SOCI 100, PSYC 202, BIOL 105/106 or consent of the program director.

Over 50% of the global population lives in cities and the rate of urbanization is predicted to increase. As a result, urban centers are expanding and increasingly peri-urban farms are transitioning to outer-ring suburbs. The development of peri-urban farmland is seemingly at odds to maintain human food security for a growing population. This course will explore fundamental linkages and feedbacks between urban and rural land use, ecosystem and human health, and sustainability. To investigate alternate land use outcomes for peri-urban and urban landscapes, we will expand ongoing partnerships with urban and rural partners to investigate the environmental, social, and economic impact of diversifying peri-urban landscapes to increase local and regional ecosystem resiliency. Prerequisites: Completion of any two (2) 300-level BIOL courses or permission of instructor.

This course explores methods of solving environmental problems. These problems are by nature, interdisciplinary and are rarely addressed in a substantive fashion in traditional science textbooks. In this course, students and faculty work together to develop a working model of a critical earth system or biogeochemical cycle (i.e. the carbon or nitrogen cycle), and learn how to make calculations of human-induced changes to that system. Students from all concentrations of the environmental science major will work together on this interdisciplinary research project using modeling and systems analysis software to more fully understand specific environments and the quantitative methods of assessing challenges to those environments. This course should be taken by all ESCI students during their junior year. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 209 or permission of instructor.
