ES8001 Natural Hazards, Climate Change and Society
This course examines the natural and human dimensions of hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, tropical storms, floods, landslides, soil erosion and desertification. Course work focuses on the causes of major natural hazards, as well as their spatial and temporal distribution. Students are also exposed to the assessment of risks posed to society and possibilities for sustainable adaptation.

ES8005 Environmental Earth Systems Science
This course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to the Earth and its systems, including the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and solid Earth. The course will focus on the linkages and feedbacks between these systems, and the role of humans in the Earth system. Students will gain a basic understanding of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, and biosphere. They will understand the linkages and feedbacks between these systems, and be able to apply their knowledge to a variety of environmental problems and issues.
ES8006 Environmental Sustainability
The goal of this course is to provide you with an inter-disciplinary introduction to environmental science with key questions to highlight the interconnections between biological, geological, and chemical processes. We aim to convey the basic science between environmental interactions and place it within the context of human impacts and dependence on the natural world. Understanding how humans interact with the system, manage, and sustain it within the context of our economies, governments, and individual choices will be critical for future thought on environmental science. We will evaluate the problems of environmental science by examining critical issues impacting the health of our population.
ES8007 Climate and Climate Change
This course introduces the climate system and climate change. Topics covered will include the state of the climate system based on understanding of physics and chemistry; past, present and future climat; and human impact on the climate system and climate change.
