ENVS 3600 - Environment and Culture

A global cross-cultural exploration of human-environment interactions. This course will examine a variety of different technological/economic systems ranging from small-scale foraging and horticultural societies to large-scale, complex and stratified societies. Special themes each semester will address different environmental problems and how they have been solved - or not - historically and contemporarily. Such themes might address: the origins and contemporary dimensions of the population debate, the role of “values” in sustainable societies, or controversies between indigenous peoples and environmentalists.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisites: ENVS 1100 or ENVS 3000 or GEOG 1000 or instructor approval.

Credits: 3 hours
