Explores the construct of risk in two phases: 1) knowledge building, focusing on the historical development of risk and its current manifestations in contemporary society; and 2) knowledge application, which focuses on applying conceptions of risk to various case study examples. The second phase of the course employs a problem-based learning approach with four distinct modules that ask students to apply, experience, and evaluate risk in a variety of contexts. Each module includes: a) a case study description, b) an experiential exercise, and c) a collaborative debriefing of the experience and reflective application to broader societal issues.
