A survey of environmental science and policy issues, including ecology, engineering, geology, geography, law, economics, philosophy, and sociology.

The emphasis in this course will be on developing skills to assemble, synthesize, and evaluate relevant information about environmental science. Students will learn about natural environmental systems, social and physical causes of environmental problems, and approaches to manage environmental issues, including climate change. Course content will draw from case studies centered on local environmental issues of Austria and Central Europe within an international framework. This course includes a field trip to the glacier in Obergurgl (tentatively scheduled for Sunday, July 8). Other field trips that expose students to contemporary environmental issues are also planned.

The University of New Orleans International Summer School program has a mandatory class attendance policy. All students are required to attend class for all morning classes and any required afternoon and/or weekend fields trips and lectures. No unexcused absences are allowed. However, LFU students who have to miss a UNO class due to LFU examinations in the first two weeks of our program, can receive one excused absence for this. Any further unexcused absences will result in an academic penalty. Each faculty member determines the penalty for missed classes. Most professors deduct a letter grade for each additional missed class day. For details, please refer to your course syllabi, which will be distributed on the first day of class.
