ES 111 ENV STDS AS A SOCIAL SCIENCE
This course will explore the interdisciplinary nature of environmental studies, investigating the linkages between environmental science, the social sciences, and the humanities. Particular emphasis will be placed on the complex linkage between science and politics, looking at both domestic U.S. environmental problems and policy as well as international and global environmental problems and responses by the international community. Environmental philosophies, literature, social activism, and economics will also be included in this interdisciplinary introduction to environmental studies.
Open to first-year students, sophomores, and juniors.
Enrollment limited to 28 students.
