An AUC lecturer in the Sciences, Dr. Bart Verheggen will deliver a lecture titled "The climate and why it's changing". How and why is the earth’s climate currently changing, and how do we know? These questions are both scientifically intriguing and socially relevant. In this sample lecture, Dr. Verheggen will briefly go over the main observations and lines of evidence underpinning our scientific understanding.
Prospective students who are thinking of applying to AUC frequently want to know what a class is like. With the diversity of courses offered, it can be difficult to choose a single representative class, as AUC students also take lab courses, conduct fieldwork outside of the classroom, participate in group work, immersive projects, give presentations and the subject matter often spans the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. Nevertheless, we want to give prospective students the opportunity to get a feel for how course material is presented, the style of lectures and how subjects are approached in the classroom.
