ARTST 107 - Systems Thinking for Problem Solvers

Systems thinking is a broadly applicable strategy for examining and understanding complex problems and discovering emergent patterns arising from synergistic relationships between elements in biological, physical, and social systems. In this course, we will explore systems thinking and systems modeling as a set of tools, habits and concepts for understanding the structures of complex systems. With an increased understanding of systems structure, identifying strategies for achieving lasting positive change is enhanced. Through hands-on practice, students will utilize systems thinking tools to analyze the root causes of current problems relating to environment, sustainability, design, planning, education, business, and organizational development. Offered Winter term.
