Course description for Global Environmental Politics

This course will examine the global politics associated with environmental issues such as desertification, wildlife management, biodiversity conservation, oceans and fisheries, shared water resources, and climate change. Specifically, we will engage these topics using theories from international relations and comparative politics. A major goal of the course is to give students a firm understanding of the linkages between the policy preferences of governments and the outcomes of international negotiations regarding the global environment.

Keeping up with Environmental Science journal literature

Want an easy way to keep up with the journal literature for all facets of Environmental Studies? And you use a mobile device? You can install the BrowZine app and create a custom Bookshelf of your favorite journal titles. Then you will get the Table of Contents (ToCs) of your favorite journals automatically delivered to you when they become available. Once you have the ToC's, you can download and read the articles you want from the journals for which we have subscriptions.

You can get the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Don't own or use a mobile device? You can still use BrowZine! It's also available in a web version. You can get to it here. The web version works the same way as the app version. Find the journals you like, create a custom Bookshelf, get ToCs and read the articles you want.
