Economics & Sustainability (in the Netherlands)

This course is an immersive experience in Term 2 (October) and includes travel to the Netherlands.

As part of this experience, students earn 2 history credits by completing Introduction to Economics [HIS450A] and Social Science of Climate Change [HIS770L] over the course of this immersive term.

During the travel portion of the course, students explore how planners, engineers, policymakers, individuals, and communities are working to adapt to the realities of climate change. Using the Netherlands as a case study, students examine what economic incentives policy makers, private businesses, and citizens are using to change behaviors. Putting our ideas into practice, we do much of our travel in the Netherlands via bicycle.

(This course will not be offered in 2023-24.)

This travel-abroad course requires parental consent.
