A geographic consideration of the interactions between environment and society. The ways in which social, economic, and cultural processes interact across local to global scales and influence environmental practices, policies, and patterns of change will be emphasized.
The current course title and bulletin description do not clearly reflect the content of this course. The field has developed significantly since this description was last revised. The proposed title and description emphasize that the course is not focused on the study of changes to environmental processes alone but the interactions of society and environment. This revised title and bulletin description clarify the focus of the course. It will also help the many students around campus who are social sciences and humanities identify this course as one that allows them to incorporate environmental interests into their fields of study.
The Justification states that there is a change to the bulletin description. However, no change is notated in the "Changes to Course Information" column. Please update this column to include the new course description.
