Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

The actions of people are crucial to environmental well-being. This course addresses the interrelationships between social phenomena and the natural (i.e., biophysical) environment. It is intended to (1) increase student awareness of these interconnections in their everyday lives; (2) introduce students to a variety of social science perspectives, including sociology, economics, psychology, and political science, that help us make sense of these connections; (3) identify the contributions of each of these perspectives to our understanding of environmental problems; and (4) discuss how natural resource management and environmental policy reflect these perspectives.

When Offered Spring.

  • LAPTOP AND ELECTRONICS POLICY Research suggests that using laptops in lectures is distracting and harmful for learning (see link below). As such, in this lecture, use of laptops and cellphones is prohibited. If you wish to take notes, you should do so with pen and paper. In place of lecture notes, all lectures are available on blackboard. We will use an app called to do interactive polls during class, however, so students should bring their phones or computers to class for these exercises.
