Proposal

Proposal ID: 106815
Type: New Course
Submission Date: May 29, 2019 11:06am
Approval Date: August 20, 2019 8:09am
Effective Term: Fall 2019
Justification:
Currently there are no courses offered through Oregon State University that would provide students with a background in the ecology of fish and wildlife in urban areas. With the world's population doubling over the last 50 years to more than 7.6 billion people globally and the subsequent expansion of urban environments, there is a need for future biologists to understand the complexities between human societies and ecosystems. In addition, urban expansion and subsequent habitat loss will continue to challenge conservation efforts. This course will provide students with the necessary background to meet the conservation and management challenges of the 21st century. In addition, this course will provide an experiential learning opportunity as students conduct field observations in and around an urban setting.
