The following courses were developed during and after the 2009 NEH summer institute on Aldo Leopold. A few syllabi focus on Leopold specifically, but most use Leopold’s “land ethic” and other ideas to inform and broaden other courses in environmental history, environmental ethics, environmental studies, and related disciplines.
Some syllabi are presented as Word documents, others are PowerPoint files, and still others are PDF documents. Clicking on the link will download the file to your computer. Most files include contact information for the professor who developed the course. They have agreed to post their work so other scholars can incorporate these ideas into their own teaching and research.
