Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Most environmental problems are complex, multi-scalar (in time and space), and bring together social-economic and ecological systems.  Responding to these problems requires both disciplinary expertise and the ability to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries. This course is taught as a 'senior seminar' with strong emphasis on application of theory/method to current cases that integrate ecological and social sciences. Students (1) become familiar with the language and theory of coupled social-ecological systems thinking; (2) gain exposure to social science methods, including hypothesis development, research evaluation, and causal inference; (3) apply the above to the analysis of multiple environmental issues; and (4) as a result, become familiar with the process of integrative research.

When Offered Spring (alternate years).
