DWA 351 Junior Seminar: Advanced Topics in Global Sustainability

This junior seminar will focus on advanced scholarship on global sustainability/sustainable development. Since the Bruntland Commission's Report in 1992, these issues have become central to world affairs and diplomacy, all the more so as the scientific and policy consensus around climate change has grown over the subsequent two decades. Most recently, in September 2015, 193 member states of the United Nations agreed to a set of bold Sustainable Development Goals. The course will provide students with knowledge about the genesis, characteristics, dynamics, and consequences in the area of global sustainability/sustainable development. It is also a course focused on research and writing in International Affairs, preparing students to write their Senior Comprehensives. Open only to DWA majors with junior or senior standing.
