NTRES 2201 - Society and Natural Resources

(crosslisted) BSOC 2201 , DSOC 2201  
(SBA-AG)      
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

D. Bugden, R. Stedman.

The actions of people are crucial to environmental well-being. This course addresses the interrelationships between social phenomena and the natural (i.e., biophysical) environment. It is intended to (1) increase student awareness of these interconnections in their everyday lives; (2) introduce students to a variety of social science perspectives, including sociology, economics, psychology, and political science, that help us make sense of these connections; (3) identify the contributions of each of these perspectives to our understanding of environmental problems; and (4) discuss how natural resource management and environmental policy reflect these perspectives.
