COST 4140K - Environmental Justice & Coastal Risk Management

Credits: 4

Students will develop and implement action plans to address complex interdisciplinary issues of coastal hazards, requiring an understanding of the natural and built environments, vulnerable communities and ecosystems, environmental law, urban settings, and environmental justice in the context of the densely populated coastlines, and their unique resources and hazards. Students will assimilate the issue with the lens of management and their specific backgrounds in this interdisciplinary setting. Includes completion of one major Service Learning Project to raise awareness of at least one coastal environmental hazard toward the reduction of disproportional risk exposure. Format: use of case studies, discussion, service-learning collaborative project(s), possible field trips.
