Why Study Climate Solutions?

The Climate Solutions Minor is intended to provide a coherent foundational knowledge about climate change and skills to work on mitigation and adaptation solutions. This new knowledge and these skills will deepen and strengthen students’ major education by offering a transdisciplinary understanding of the forces that have created the climate crisis, possible solutions offered by various fields, and the socio-economic and political forces that have made the solutions to this crisis so difficult.
