ENST 3055 - Environment and Society


The course will develop a critical understanding of the reciprocal relationship between humans and the natural environment. In exploring the ways in which humans influence the environment and the ways the environment sets the parameters of human society, the course applies a sociological framework to evaluate the interactions between social factors (class, race, gender, religion) and environmental factors (air and water quality, biodiversity, deforestation, ozone depletion) and discussions of current issues, including the U.S. environmental movement, ecotourism, waste management, energy policies, and “NIMBYism.”
