A new seminar course has been added to the graduate curriculum at Virginia Tech.  Open to all PhD students from across campus, FIW 5004: Global Change Seminar will be conducted as a brown bag discussion of primary literature on how major threats to global biodiversity interact to affect the environment and how science can inform public policy to influence these interactions. Students will be required to read and discuss primary literature with their peers and the IGC Faculty each week.

This one credit seminar will be offered annually each fall semester. During Fall 2013, the class will meet on Mondays from 5:30-7:00 p.m., in 311 Latham Hall.
