Course Credit: 1
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES This course will explore the intersection of development and sustainability. We will begin with a historical understanding of the idea of sustainable development, then shift to a more applied and experiential focus with an emphasis on case studies from around the world.
