The changing arctic
Environment and Society in a Changing Arctic is a new 6 credit course offered in collaboration with KTH Royal Institute of Technology. In 2012, 17 Illinois students and 13 KTH students, of a variety of disciplinary background, spent 5 weeks together in Stockholm taking an interdisciplinary course on issues related to climate change and the Arctic, followed by a 10 day excursion to conduct field research on Svalbard, north of the Arctic Circle.
