Theology/Ecology Clim Change

Theological and Ecological Perspectives on Climate Change
In this course we will examine the interplay between science and religion by examining ecological and theological perspectives on climate change. We will begin with an exploration of how ecology and Christian theologies see the relationship between humans and nature. From there, we will delve into climate change, asking how theological and ecological viewpoints contribute to our understandings of the problem and how each elicits responses in the form of social action and policy. The course will end with an examination of how partnerships between scientific communities and communities of faith are addressing climate change and environmental justice. This course counts as an approved Integrative Cognate toward fulfillment of the ES major cognate requirement.
