GOVT-332 Comparative Environmental Politics (3)


To give students a strong sense of one of the most important and yet misunderstood political issues of our time, this course explains why some nations have adopted strong positions vis-a-vis climate change and others have not. The course requires extensive research by students, and also role-playing of national positions in exercises to consider the interplay between domestic and global environmental policies and the roles interest groups and other actors play within nations in the articulation of political agendas. Usually Offered: alternate springs. Grading: A-F only. Prerequisite: GOVT-130 . Restriction: minimum 2.5 GPA.
