About the Major »
What is ‘the environment’? What are the environmental impacts of “business as usual”? In this course, we will explore these and other questions that examine how and why we relate to the environment in the ways that we do.
Coming out of this course, you will be better equipped to analyze how global politics are linked to local environmental issues – from small changes to policy, to international treaties, to protest and demands for radical systems change.
Through lecture, discussion, and collaborative work, we explore interactions between organisms and the environment from the molecular to the global scale.
