Details to come as the start of the semester gets closer, but two new undergraduate courses are coming to the Pratt Institute’s fall schedule.
On Mondays 9:30am-12:20pm, the Sustainable Core debuts. This course will bring together faculty from across the institution to introduce students to ways the school’s disciplines approach sustainability.
On Thursdays 9:30am-12:20pm, American Urban Life explores how cities in the United States have evolved from colonial times to the present. Themes to be explored include how social movements develop in cities and how humans interact with the environment to consume resources, manage wastes, and develop systems of survival.
Both courses will cover environmental consequences of modern life, and both are suitable for any undergraduate student interested in the subject matter. I am excited to bring them both to Pratt.
