Variable topics that are offered as irregular courses. Past course topics have included: Finding Place: Technology, Stories, and the Environment; Introduction to Botany; Environment, Health, and Development; Conservation and Development; Booms and Busts in Resources of Georgia; and Paleoecology.

This small-group course offers students who have a background on climate change an opportunity to dive deeper into specific aspects of international and domestic climate change policy, ranging from outcomes of the December 2015 UN Climate Conference in Paris to Georgia’s efforts to advance clean energy and build climate resilience. The course is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students and is open on a permission-only basis. The course is taught by Daniel Rochberg, an instructor in ENVS and RSPH/EH who spent 17 years working with the U.S. Department of State on international climate and sustainable development policy.  Interested students are asked to email the instructor at daniel.rochberg@emory.edu for more details, including their background on climate change and why they want to take the class.
