SUST 630 - METHODS & PRACTICES OF SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability is about dealing with complex systems, and a systems approach to complexity requires a special view of reality. This course is structured into three modules which deal with both the methods of research required for the study of sustainability and for the practices useful in the implementation of sustainability. Modules One and Two deal with qualitative and quantitative research methods, respectively. The idea here is to give you a working knowledge of the approaches to research that may be useful to you in the development of your Capstone Project. Module Three is focused on the practices of implementation, but with the idea that, in the case of complex systems, the best way of learning is by doing. Here we will look at tools and techniques that may help us to make sense of complexity, and that enable us to grab ahold of the world we care about, and to move it this way or that. Students will emerge from the course with the working draft of a research proposal that can then be developed, over the following semesters, into their Capstone Project.
