Registration for Fall semester 2011 at Roosevelt University is underway, and these Sustainability Studies courses still have space available.
We are offering three sections of the SUST 210 Sustainable Future introductory seminar, one taught online with select field trips by Professor Zimring, one taught downtown Tuesday evenings by Michele Hoffman, and one taught in Schaumburg Tuesday evenings as well. The Sustainable Future is an ideal introduction to the ways in which Roosevelt University teaches Sustainability Studies.
Professor Mike Bryson offers SUST 220 Water as a hybrid course meeting several Saturdays in Schaumburg and online, with select field trips. Making its debut as a downtown seminar meeting Thursday nights is SUST 230 Food. Also downtown, Professor Julian Kerbis Peterhans offers a section of SUST 330 Biodiversity Friday mornings. SUST 330 will once again meet at the Field Museum of Natural History, where students will get hands-on experience helping staff label and classify specimens.
As we continue to present these popular courses, we are also pleased to introduce an online offering of SUST 310 Energy and Climate Change, an exciting upper-division seminar that explicitly addresses the environmental problems of our current energy consumption practices.
