Health and Built Environment

Course Overview

This course will critically examine the complex interplay between engineering, development, and other interventions that impact the environment, and human, animal, and planetary health. Students will employ transdisciplinary and complex systems approaches to better understand how changes to the environment can impact health outcomes, and thereby foster an awareness of the unintended outcomes of their work and the need for greater intentionality in the planning, design, and implementation of their interventions and projects. This course will also cultivate an understanding of the important, but often overlooked, development of social infrastructure in tandem with the development of physical infrastructure for fostering sustainability.
