Current courses taught at the University of Michigan
Wildlife & Society (EAS 501.007) - Fall Semesters
This course will largely utilize a coupled natural-human (or social-ecological) systems approach to understanding human-wildlife interactions and contemporary wildlife conservation issues from local to global scales. A main goal is to help students engage in creative problem solving in a way that cross-cuts and transcends traditionally isolated disciplines. The course will train graduate students to take an interdisciplinary approach to critically analyze wildlife conservation issues occurring around the globe.
Principles of GIS (EAS 531 / ENVIRON 411) - Winter Semesters
One of the most relevant and highest growth job markets in environmental sciences is Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Graduates of this comprehensive Principles of GIS course are well-prepared for jobs having GIS components in a variety of professional fields. The goals of this class are therefore to provide a firm understanding of the conceptual approaches and uses (lecture), plus technical methods (lab) in GIS. Labs and lecture case studies cover applications of GIS in the natural, social, data, and environmental sciences making this course of interest to students broadly.
