Great Lakes Theme Semester
LSA’s research takes place all around the world, but important learning and discovery also happens close to home. The Great Lakes Theme Semester offers opportunities for students, faculty, and the public to join conversations about issues both critical to our region and relevant to national and international contexts.
Through courses, films, panels, exhibits, field trips, and other events, "Lake Effects" will encourage interdisciplinary exploration of how the environmental, political, and social issues facing our region have long been shaped by the Great Lakes, and how human activities continue to impact them in turn.
Explore courses from different departments across campus. Below are some featured courses, but be sure to explore the full course offerings before you register.
We strive to support the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, LSA needs your support.
