Throughout this course, we will examine climate change from an interdisciplinary perspective. A first step is to understand climate change from the perspective of the various disciplines/majors represented by students in the course. This assignment also addresses our course’s integrative learning goals.
Compose an essay aimed at a public (general) audience that addresses these questions:
- Introduce your discipline (your major) to the general public. What is your discipline's mission, its guiding principles, objectives, or primary focus? You can address specific areas of focus, important scholars, etc. to help your audience grasp the concepts.
- Provide two (2) reasons why climate change is an important issue for your discipline to consider and/or address. Or, how does climate change affect your discipline, is related to your discipline? Consider exploring the three spheres of sustainability: environmental, social, economic aspects of your major. For each reason, clearly explain and provide support for your claims.
- Explain one (1) way in which your discipline can contribute to further understanding of global climate change issues. In other words, how could your discipline help with reducing the effects of climate change, educating the audience, etc.
