The new AMS Climate Studies curriculum was used to introduce an academically diverse group of Lamar University Honors students to the concepts of global climate science and global climate change. Fifteen honors students participated in the course. The background of the students varied from science and engineering majors to those majoring in the humanities. Pre- and post-course surveys recorded the students' opinions about global climate change.
