This is the first week of classes in Pratt’s Spring 2014 term, although due to MLK Day and the cold weather, my two sustainability courses begin meeting next week. SUST 401 is at capacity, but I am leading a team of Pratt Institute faculty teaching the fourth offering of SUST 201P The Sustainable Core. As of this morning, eight spaces remain in the capacity-25 seminar. This course is designed as our introduction to sustainability, and it is a required course for Pratt’s Sustainability Studies minor.
SUST 201-01 The Sustainable Core
This course provides an overview of sustainability by exploring definitions, controversies, trends, and case-studies in various systems and locales (urban/rural, local/national/global). Investigation of critical elements of sustainability, including environmental history and urban ecology, sustainable development and landscape transformations, recycling/waste management, ecosystem restoration, and environmental justice.
Spring 2014: Mondays, 2pm-4:50pm. 3 credit hours.
This course may count as a Social Science or Philosophy elective, and is required for the Sustainability Studies minor. If you are a Pratt student and have any questions for me about SUST 201 or the minor, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
