The PCC developed several graduate level interdisciplinary climate science courses and seminars that are central to the Graduate Certificate in Climate Science and the capstone experience for the Climate Minor.
Interdisciplinary PCC-core courses:
- Fundamentals of Climate Change (Au) (ATM S/ESS/OCN 587)
- NEW OPTION Climate Dynamics offered as OCN 569/ESS 590/ATMS 591 for Winter 2017 (3 cr) Alternate yrs, next offering planned for Winter 2019.
- The Global Carbon Cycle and Climate (Wi) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 588)
- Paleoclimatology: Data, Modeling and Theory (alt yrs) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 589)
- Paleoclimate Proxies (alt yrs) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 554)
- Climate Modeling (alt Sp) (ATMS/ESS 559 and OCN 558)
- Current Research in Climate Change (Au or Wi) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 586): theme changes each year.
- 2018 (Wi): Unanswered Questions in Climate Change Research (led by Armour)
- 2016: Security and Climate Change (led by Thompson & Ray)
- 2015: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Climate Change and Food (led by Thompson)
- 2014: The Road to COP 20 (led by Thompson & Ebi)
- 2013: Marine Ecosystem Responses to Climate (led by Thompson)
- 2012: Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation (led by Thompson)
- 2011: Peak Oil, Coal, Natural Gas and Climate Change (led by Thompson & Murray)
- 2010: Climate Change Feedbacks (led by Thompson & Murray)
- Communicating Climate Science Seminar (varies) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 593)
Climate Science Communication Capstone (ATMS/ESS/OCN 596) 1-5 cr. Required of students doing the graduate certificate in climate science (GCeCS) and available to others interested in doing an independent climate communication project.
Undergraduate Current Research in Climate Change (Au) (ATMS/ESS/OCN 475, taught in conjunction with 586), 3 cr. Required for the Climate Minor, also available to others.
