The Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP) has compiled courses into climate-related guides to provide students who are interested in these topics with suggested courses that can be taken along any course of study. The Climate Curricular Guides are simply meant to assist students in course selection. There are no requirements for completion.
Courses in the Climate and Health Guide have been compiled to provide all students interested in health and climate change with a guide to relevant areas of study. We have included a wide range of courses from different schools and disciplines in order to provide various lenses through which climate change and its implications can be understood. We encourage you to look at courses both within and outside your school or major and encourage you to look at the specific course descriptions as you determine if a course may fit within your course of study.
If you have any questions feel free to contact the Climate and Health Guide leads Prof. Angela Hobson, Senior Lecturer and Assistant Dean For Public Health, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Prof. Lora Iiannotti, Associate Professor and Associate Dean For Public Health, at email@example.com.
- Each course will vary in the amount of time dedicated to climate and health — please look at the course description and at our Curriculum Database for guidance.
- Not every listing will directly relate to climate and health. Some classes may instead develop skills needed to tackling climate change as it relates to health.
- Some courses may require prerequisites.
- *Capstone courses are noted with an asterisk. Capstone courses often integrate project work. Some projects may be related to Health. Please check with the instructor.
- **Graduate courses are noted with a double asterisk. Not all graduate courses are open to undergraduates, please check with the instructor.
This is a work in progress. If we are missing a course, let us know! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
