GEOG 360 - Environmental Geography

Environmental geography, one of the most traditional components of the discipline of geography, encompasses natural science, social science, and humanistic understandings of the earth’s environment. Environmental geographers study the complex relationships between humans and the natural environment over time and through space. Geography 360 is being conducted as a seminar focused on social science and humanistic approaches to the environment. This course will provide a historical, geographical, and humanistic foundation for understanding the environment and the plethora of environmental issues that confront us at the beginning of this century. As a group, we will discuss current environmental issues and read and discuss a series of key books on the environment. Students will also examine a particular environmental topic in depth, culminating in a presentation at the end of the semester. Open to juniors and seniors, or by permission of the instructor.
