Today marks the beginning of the spring semester in Roosevelt University’s Sustainability Studies program, featuring the widest selection yet of courses. Professor Mike Bryson is teaching SUST 210 The Sustainable Future both at Roosevelt’s Schaumburg campus and online and new adjunct professor Michele Hoffman-Trotter offers one section of SUST 210 at Roosevelt’s downtown Chicago campus.
Following a successful debut last summer, adjunct professor Maris Cooke once again offers an online version of SUST 230 Food.
We are also pleased to debut two new courses this spring. Professor Carl Zimring is teaching SUST 240 Waste online, and Professor Julian Kerbis Peterhans teaches SUST 330 Biodiversity as a hybrid course both online and downtown at the Field Museum on Tuesday afternoons.
That’s just for starters. We have exciting new field experiences in these courses that we’ll share soon, and in a few weeks, we will also announce more course offerings for Summer 2011. Check back as the weather gets warmer for even more new developments we’re planning for Fall 2011.
