Special Topic: Environmental Sociology

Please note: this is archived course information from 2012 for SOCIOL 229.


This course gives students the tools with which to think sociologically about environmental issues, which includes understanding how environmental issues come to be seen as environmental problems, and considering how political, cultural, and economic factors have come to shape our patterns of interaction with the natural environment. By the end of this course, students will be empowered to think critically about the environmental problems in their lives, as well as the solutions proposed to address those problems.
