Global Environmental Change
Global climate change presents complex challenges in many respects. First, the science of climate change involves atmospheric, ocean, land, and social sciences. Second, policy responses involve difficult economic decisions and complicated implementation mechanisms. Third, the implications of climate change, for example, for sea level rise, are uneven throughout the world, raising questions about who should pay to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and who suffers from climate change. Stratospheric ozone and climate change are two examples of global environmental issues. Others, such as loss of biodiversity, are equally complex. This science-oriented concentration prepares students to addresses the scientific underpinnings, societal impacts, and policy responses to global environmental issues.
This concentration is sponsored by the Department of Geographical Sciences within the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.

Advising & Registration:
Meet with Ms. Allison Bredder to have your advising block removed. She will work with you during scheduling and registration. She will make sure you stay on track to complete your ENSP major requirements. You’ll need to meet with her each semester before you will be able to register for courses so she can remove your mandatory advising block. She can help with questions about administrative issues such as registration and general university policies and resources. Begin this process at least 2 weeks early to be sure you can register on time.
