Human Experience

This emphasis is designed to give students broad exposure to how the environment is represented and researched in the social sciences and humanities. This includes a wide-ranging examination of environmental issues through time and from diverse perspectives in order to provide students the ability to better understand and critically assess contemporary environmental challenges. An underlying theme is the critical examination of the notion of sustainability as a potential principle underlying and guiding human interaction with the environment. Throughout the emphasis, issues of sustainability as they relate to rural/urban linkages will be emphasized.
