MetadataShow full item record
The research completed in this study evaluates the levels of understanding, awareness, and concern for climate change of current undergraduate students in Dalhousie University’s Faculties of Engineering, Science, Health Professions, Architecture and Planning, Management, and Arts and Social Sciences. This was done through an optional online survey, which received 242 respondents from five faculties: Science, Arts and Social Sciences, Architecture and Planning, Engineering, Health Professions and Management. By analyzing the results through descriptive and inferential statistics, it was found that students in the Faculties of Science and Faculty of Architecture and Planning demonstrated higher levels of awareness, understanding, and concern for climate change than the other faculties. Therefore, it is recommended that Dalhousie University expand its integration of climate change into academic curricula in the Faculties of Engineering, Health Professions, Management, and Arts and Social Sciences.
