Political Scientist Works to Improve International Environmental Cooperation and More
"UMass Amherst is fertile ground for undergrads and graduate students interested in globalization and international environmental issues," says Peter Haas, professor of political science and outgoing director of the political science graduate program. "We have a group of professors from engineering, natural resources, anthropology, economics and political science who share related interests. We're all engaged in a critical assessment of aspects of globalization and looking at various activities for improving both the collective management of shared problems and the human prospect. As students take advantage of these interdisciplinary approaches to global issues here on campus, their global competence should increase dramatically."
