Master's Research Programs
CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY
The 30th June, the master Research Program on climate change and Energy student's went for the field work. This phase account for the last semester in order to complete their study by writing the thesis.
Dr. Sara Beth Keough, Professor of Geography at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan, spent the 2016-2017 school year as a Fulbright Scholar in the country of Niger doing research and teaching in the West African Science Service Center for the Study of Climate Change and Energy at Niger’s national university, l’Université Abdou Moumouni, in the country’s capital of Niamey. Students in the Center’s graduate program observed many negative impacts of climate change in their respective countries. Dr. Keough recorded the reflections of five West African students in her course “Communicating Climate Change.” These stories help to expand the dialogue surrounding climate change to incorporate the experiences of some of the most vulnerable populations in some of the world’s poorest countries.
