This foundational course focuses on the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the global Earth system as they relate to sustainability challenges and intersections with society.

The course includes a strong focus on developing graduate-level academic writing skills, including small group peer-review sessions for the pre-course assignment and training in academic writing skills. These elements are combined to culminate in a scientific term paper.

The course format includes lectures, labs, group work and activities, and a three-day, two-night excursion through the natural and cultural landscapes of Skåne, based at a field station in Breanäs. 


An emphasis is also placed on effective communication, leadership, and group dynamics in a multicultural setting, laying the foundation for collaborative learning projects throughout the LUMES program.
