MSCI-471P Ecology in Action

3 Credits

Urban ecology is the study of interactions within environments that are heavily human-dominated. This course considers how urban ecology studies can be conducted in order to address scientific questions that relate to environmental justice. Through an engagement with the New York City ecosystem, students will learn to hear the environmental justice concerns of their neighbors and design scientific studies that address those concerns. Working collaboratively, students will collect data, analyze that data, and share what they have discovered.
