No prerequisites are required as understandable scientific background will be provided. Classes will be interactive, with scholarly discussions and policy debates. Students will (1) prepare a policy brief, which will be peer reviewed; (2) write “blog type” reflections online; and (3) deliver several mini-presentations throughout the semester. The course will culminate with a take-home final exam.
