Developing an Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Climate Change and Society
The CCS curriculum will deliver core courses in climate change science, decision modeling and statistics, geographic information systems, and environmental economics among others. Engagement in an internship or research project will focus student learning in one of two specialties: climate risk analysis or climate policy. Risk analysis students will receive practical, hands-on experience in analyzing climate risks and developing adaptation strategies in climate sensitive sectors. Climate policy students will become effective interpreters and communicators of climate change data and information.
