Course Description

Addressing and preparing for environmental change requires knowledge about the environment but also must involve shifting the actions of humans.In this course, we develop student’s capacity to be leaders in addressing environmental problems. Specifically, students will learn to see environmental issues as complex social-ecological systems issues; exploring what drives human’s behavior, the factors shaping the health and responses of ecosystems and working to discover the connections between humans and their environments. Students will emerge as socio-ecological thinkers.
