EDMG691 Climate Change Seminar (3 semester hours)
This course will serve as the final program requirement for the graduate certificate titled: Climate Change Awareness & Leadership. Students must complete all other certificate requirements prior to enrolling in this course. Students will conduct a major action research project that demonstrates their ability to implement leadership principles that will enable society to be aware of, prepare for, mitigate, and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The project must interface with a government agency chartered with the responsibility of protecting the public, or a public institution responsible for the education of children. Class deliverables may include: a municipal climate change awareness and adaptation plan; a community education awareness campaign; a public school awareness project; or similar as negotiated and jointly designed by the student and instructor. At the conclusion of the project, the student will submit a journal that describes the project design, implementation, and impacts in detail.
