Influences of humans on the global environment have reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 208, or any 100-level GEOL, and CHEM 112 or CHEM 115

This course examines the role of government in a modern economy. It develops a set of concepts that will allow students to evaluate policy alternatives. The following are among the particular topics likely to be addressed: externalities and environmental protection, education, the redistribution of income, health care, social insurance, taxation and tax reform, cost-benefit analysis, fiscal federalism, and state and local government finance. In each case, the focus is on whether intervention by government is appropriate, what the most effective form of any such intervention is, and how alternative policy interventions affect the private decisions made by citizens and business firms.

This course will use fiction and non-fiction multi-media to explore environmental issues using an indigenous lens. We'll focus a large portion of our reading on the Native nations specific to our region, largely Anishinaabe/Ojibwe and related peoples. We'll dispel the romantic stereotype of the nature-loving Native (Disney version and the like) by a focus on Native-authored texts and responses to historic and contemporary environmental issues. In addition to reading and writing about Native literature, this course will strive to connect students to Native American food and farming and the social-ecological systems in which the stories are embedded. Off campus trips to local sites may be organized, including Dream of Wild Health (an Indigenous farm), Mashkiikii Gitigan (an Indigenous urban garden), All My Relations Art Gallery, and Two Rivers Gallery/Gatherings Cafe. We'll also have in-class conversations with Native American leaders in community environmental activism, and we may get to try our hand at some indigenous cooking as well. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement and counts towards the Sustainability minor.

A capstone course that combines field experience with classroom seminar. Student teams will conduct collaborative broadly interdisciplinary analyses of selected environmental problems. Field-based projects are chosen by the students in consultation with course instructor. Classroom seminars are used for exchange of information between teams and for discussion of readings pertinent to individual research projects or, more broadly, to the interdisciplinary character of environmental problem-solving. Each team produces a major paper that examines the selected problems through humanities, natural-science and social-science lenses. This class is cross-listed with, and is equivalent to, GEOG 402.

The course deals with archaeological methods, theories and interpretations in discovering, reconstructing, and understanding past societies worldwide. As we address specific thematic units and case studies, we learn how archaeological evidence and interdisciplinary research reveal human responses and adaptations to their environments and climate change. Archaeology generally deals with material remains and is the primary discipline that systematically studies societies and time periods that lack written documents. Historical archaeology combines the methods of archaeology with analysis of written and oral sources. This holistic approach builds our knowledge of the human past, enables critical reappraisal of the interconnection between cultural and environmental change and accounts for the relevance of past experiences to our current issues.

Major aspects of world and local conflict, theories of social science relating to conflict and violence, and various proposals for solutions. Among the aspects of conflict studied are cultural differences, scarcity of resources, economic and social structures, international trade, the arms race, corruption, oppression and war. Proposed solutions assessed include development, structural changes, world governance, multinational agencies, military power, civilian-based defense, active nonviolence for social change, conflict resolution, disarmament, cultural exchange, religious revival and prayer. These topics are considered in the light of theory, history, and literature. Students apply these concepts by investigating one country or geographic area in depth through a semester long research project. Usually offered every semester. This course fulfills the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.
