UnSt 224 Environmental Sustainability

This cluster explores what we as humans are doing to our surroundings, the consequences of our actions, and what we should be doing to be more in harmony with the environment. By defining, characterizing, and understanding the environment, students will learn how to creatively promote and contribute to sustainability. They will accomplish this by investigating the possibilities of urban planning, studying literature and film, and analyzing the consequences of air and water pollution. Courses are designed to navigate a path through the scientific approach to analyze and solve environmental problems, socioeconomic concerns in environmental policy, and the historic and philosophical basis of our relationship to different ecosystems.
