The Clinic conducts various skills-focused and topical seminars on the Tufts main campus.
Graduate Courses in Tufts' Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning Department
Applied Economics Seminar on Environment and Community Equity: This is a seminar, previously offered in Fall 2017 and to be offered again in Fall 2018, in which students will examine current-day issues related to the economics of the environment and its impact on community equity. The module provides graduate students with an opportunity to review and discuss applied economics analysis regarding the energy sector, climate change, and impacts on community well-being. The course involves class presentations and discussions regarding current applied economics analysis in local, regional and federal energy sector issues, climate regulations, and other policies. The focus of this module will be on real-world, current economic analysis preformed for advocacy groups and government agencies in relationship to energy, climate, and community equity proposed and enacted policies, and proposed and approved infrastructure projects. There is no required textbook for the class, and readings will either be posted to Trunk or readily available online. Note: Students will receive 1 credit for this seminar. To have their participation in the seminar appear on their transcripts, students must formally enroll in the seminar as they would with any other class. You can find the course syllabus here.
The course also includes our Fall 2018 Seminar Series that is open to all regardless of registration in the course. Guest speakers, such as economists and other technical practitioners directly involved in current energy issues, will present to the class from 9:30-10:30am during each class session.
