ENST 370 - Environmental Sociology


This course focuses on sociological investigations of contemporary environmental/ ecological issues. From a sociological standpoint it is axiomatic that most of the ecological/environmental problems and crisis that we currently face are at their root social problems. This is not to minimize or erase the very real biogeochemical processes that have been disrupted, corrupted and eradicated by human actions; rather this perspective highlights those human actions and their outcomes. This course will be project based and organized around one or more case studies to introduce students to the relevant academic literature and to emphasize data analysis and concrete problem solving.

Pre-req: SOC 200 and Sophomore standing or above
