Climate Change across the Curriculum examines ways of thinking and conveying information about climate change across university curricula and within academic disciplines. The contributors provide methods, strategies, rationales, and theoretical justifications for teaching climate issues at the university level. The content of this book aims to introduce climate change to classes outside of the sciences, as it will take a wide range of disciplines, broader institutional thinking, and experimentation to fully engage university resources and knowledge toward the mitigation of fossil fuel consumption and adaptation to the negative consequences of climate change. Climate Change across the Curriculum encourages professors to engage salient aspects of their academic disciplines to the study of climate issues in the classroom, as well as sample theories, practices, and resources from a wide range of academic disciplines outside of their own areas of specialization. The contributors ask: what role will higher education play in addressing environmental challenges and producing students who become professionals who accomplish work that solves these problems?
