Human activities have had a significant impact on climate, ecosystems and landscapes. One epoch, in particular, will leave a permanent mark on Earth: the Anthropocene. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the Anthropocene microprogram courses will introduce you to the science of global environmental challenges and foster discussions about their causes and relevance to society today and in the future. Combining the natural sciences with studies in human and policy dimensions of environmental change, this microprogram is designed to broaden your knowledge base and prepare you for your future career by delivering meaningful and transferable learning outcomes. It also bridges the gaps between facts and values, theory and practice, science and policy.
