PHYS248, Special Topics, in Winter 2012 will be the second offering of a (soon-to-be) permanent 200-level course on sustainable energy and its relationship with climate change mitigation efforts. We will survey many different aspects of the looming global energy revolution from a technical and social perspective. The only prerequisites for the class are a good grasp of basic mathematics (algebra, only -- no calculus) and an enthusiasm to learn about a core issue for the day-to-day lives, and future careers, of every UW student.

This course can count towards the Policy Elective component of the UW Climate Minor.
