Best Online Courses in Environmental Studies 2019

Taking individual courses can be one way for students to further their education while engaging in material that is interesting and can help them pursue their passion. These in-depth classes may give students the experience and skills they need to excel in their future careers.

What is a course in environmental studies? It is a class designed to teach participants about individual topics relating to the environment. Courses commonly cover sustainability, ecosystems, soil, oil and gas, and the atmosphere. Students often learn how the environment impacts life and the importance of protecting it. Learning how the environment is changing may help scholars understand how to keep different ecosystems healthy for years to come.
By understanding environmental problems and finding acceptable solutions, students who take a course in environmental studies have the chance to develop critical problem-solving skills. Learners may also acquire excellent communication abilities as they take on the social responsibility of protecting the environment. Organization can also prove useful in any career.
Courses often have different fees according to whether they are held online or on campus. Additionally, universities often vary in tuition costs from country to country. Contacting schools of interest is usually the most effective way to find out the most current cost of a course.
Environmental studies open the door to many interesting careers. Students who want an office job may find careers as meteorologists or oceanographers. Those who prefer a hands-on career may be happy as zoologists, wildlife managers, or microbiologists. Some may choose careers as horticulturists or soil scientists, or they may be happier as ecologists. With the changing environment, there is no short supply in environmentalist jobs.
The ever-changing environment creates a global need for courses in environmental studies, and many universities help meet this demand by offering remote courses for those who cannot attend classes on campus for various reasons.

Course in Global Energy and Climate Policy

The Global Energy and Climate Policy course offers an introduction to the theoretical and practical understanding of how energy and climate change policies are designed, shaped, advocated and implemented. As energy markets go truly global, domestic energy policies are becoming more and more entangled with wider issues of international governance. Concurrently, the urgent need to mitigate and adapt to climate change and transition to a low-carbon future is adding a further layer of complexity.

The course is aimed broadly at people interested in learning more about interconnected issues in energy and climate policy globally. It assumes a level of interest but no necessary previous knowledge. However, the course also offers sufficient up to date research and new critical perspectives to be of interest to people with expertise in or academic familiarity with the topic as well. ... [-]

We need to understand the science behind global warming to avoid the most damaging and irreversible climate change impacts on people and planet. About this course

Climate change is arguably the greatest challenge of our time. Human activity has already warmed the planet by one degree Celsius relative to pre-industrial times, and we are feeling the effects through record heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and flooding. If we continue to burn fossil fuels at the current rate, the planet will reach two degrees of warming by 2050 - the threshold that many scientists have identified as a dangerous tipping point. What is the science behind these projections?

Join climate scientist expert Michael Mann to learn about the basic scientific principles behind climate change and global warming. We need to understand the science in order to solve the broader environmental, societal and economic changes that climate change is bringing. ... [-]
