Environmental Science Approved Courses from other departments - Environment and Culture SOSA 2101   Environment and Culture
Concern about the environment is an increasingly widespread phenomenon as more people and confront their relationship to a changing ecology. Environmental issues like pollution, global warming, or resource depletion, have global as well as personal implications. The efforts of cities to deal with environmental pollution, for example, may lead to conflicts with rural regions, and changes in consumption patterns in one country may have consequences for the environment of other countries. This course will explore key relationships between human culture and the physical environment. Topics to be examined may include: environmental knowledge, food and agriculture, environmental ethics, health, resource management and conservation.
