Climate Justice: Tackling the Human Element of Climate Change
Generations of Indigenous people have interacted with the land and their local ecology, generating deep, experiential knowledge of the weather and the ability to read the conditions over time. Yet this data has all but been ignored by climate change science. Students are exploring the intersections of humans, climate, and justice in a Summer Session philosophy class.
About the Block Plan
PY116 – PY408: Cultural Psychology
“We are members of a cultural species. That is, we depend critically on cultural learning in virtually all aspects of our lives.” (Heine, 2010).

Students will gain basic knowledge of grammar and vocabulary through a variety of contextual, situational, and multimedia exercises, and experience South Asian Events and Bollywood movies and songs as part of this course.
PH203 – Contesting Climate Justice
Climate change raises difficult questions of justice and equity: How might the burdens of reducing emissions be fairly shared among nations? Who should pay for adaptation in climate-vulnerable regions? Who has a say in climate decisions? PH203 examines fairness, equity, and justice in relation to climate change.
CP365 – Artificial Intelligence
In CP365, we study the machine learning algorithms that power modern artificial intelligence applications. We will consider the theoretical foundations of these algorithms and implement our own versions running them on several commercial and scientific datasets. Major projects include a movie recommendation system.
Colorado College recognizes and honors the original inhabitants who first settled in the area and who called the nearby highest mountain “Tava,” the original name given by the Ute people to what is now known as Pikes Peak.
