MCOP 580 - Comparative Risk Governance

Credits: 3
This course is open to students of any disciplinary background that are also interested in social issues concerning risk and uncertainty. The overarching purpose of this course is to introduce students to issues arising at the interface of scientific and technological uncertainty and public policy decision making. In turn, students will develop knowledge and tools useful for developing a deeper appreciation for contentious local and global issues such as, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), natural disasters, climate change, and nanotechnology. Students will have the opportunity to apply course theory and tools to the study of an international risk issue of their choice.

Repeat Policy:
Course may only be taken once for credit
