Special Note from Hamilton College Regarding Vaccinations and the COVID-19 Pandemic:

Hamilton College is requiring all students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to arriving on campus in fall 2021, working on campus during summer 2021, or participating in Hamilton study away programs including Hamilton’s New York City Program. The College believes this policy is the best way to resume a full range of activities while protecting the health and safety of our students and the communities in which we operate. Some students may be eligible for -- and will need to show documentation of -- religious or medical exceptions, but the New York City Program hopes to achieve 100 percent compliance with this vaccination requirement. Moreover, for the New York City Program, in-person internships and many of our integral cultural and theme-related activities are likely to require proof of vaccination or proof of a very recent negative COVID-19 test. Hamilton’s policy is in place notwithstanding changes in local, state,
or federal health regulations.


Spring 2022

Environmental Ethics: Theory & Practice

Responses to the Climate Crisis in the Global City

Director:  Katheryn Doran, Associate Professor of Philosophy

Phone:  315-859-4135

Email:  kdoran@hamilton.edu

October 29, 2012: battered by Hurricane Sandy, New York City learned first-hand the enormous and deadly costs of climate change. We will explore how, in the intervening (near) decade New York City – citizens, industries, government –  has set about to repair the damage and prevent future such catastrophes.

The program will combine theoretical work on environmental ethics with applied attention to a variety of environmental ethical issues, and in particular on the question of how we should respond to the climate crisis.

We will explore questions about the relationships among individual action, political measures, and work in and on the private sector. Among our areas of focus will be varieties of information about and advocacy regarding transportation, environmental education, investment in research and development of energy resources, urban food sources, and building and housing.

Open to all majors. No pre-requisites.

Environmental Studies, Philosophy, and Public Policy concentrators and minors may receive up to two credits toward their concentration or minor.

Up to two credits can be allowed towards the Government major for COLEG 396 and COLEG 398, with COLEG 396 being conditional on Departmental approval of the final research project.
