NSC Seminars

Each Spring semester, RISE offers at least one seminar that fulfills the second seminar requirement for the Environmental Studies Specialization. 

Seminars held in the past include:

  • “The Environmental Consequences of the Food We Eat,” or NSC 292. This class investigates the environmental, social, political and economic consequences of the food we eat. The focus of this course is NOT dieting, weight loss, or nutrition. Rather, this course is about exploring how our food choices may contribute to either the degradation or the healing of our planet. As a seminar course you will be expected to actively participate in class discussions and contribute content on a weekly basis.
  • "Voluntary Simplicity" or NSC 390. This 8-week discussion course will focus on a variety of topics including the meaning of simplicity, living more with less, making a living, time, and living simply on the earth.
