GEOG 308. Environment, Nature and Society


This course focuses on the interaction and integration of human and physical environments. It uses geographical approaches to examine relationships between people and the natural world, and it explores the origins and implications of the perceived separation of humans and nature. At a variety of scales, and using case studies, issues of resource use, environmental and human vulnerability, global and local environmental change, landscape modification, and human impacts on natural systems are explored. Along with the close analysis of spatial patterns and processes in the natural world, questions of politics, economics, culture, perception, justice and ethics may be considered in the examination of human-environment interactions. Prerequisite: GEOG 210  with a "C" or better and GEOG 280  with a "C" or better.
