Course Homepage:

Ecological Issues provides students with knowledge on the breadth and complexity of environmental problems. Emphasis is placed on ecological principles and interdisciplinary approaches to matters concerning the allocation of natural resources and environmental quality within the context of our society. Attention will be given not only to ecology, but also to economic, legal, political, social, and psychological ramifications of environmental problems. Material is presented through lectures, recitation, readings, and films. Lectures and readings in the early part of the course deal with ecology. Once a basic ecological framework has been established, case studies illustrating the multifaceted nature of environmental problems will be examined. The recitation sections break the course down into groups of 20 students for discussion, to supplement the lectures with debates, film and slide presentations, and to complete group projects. Each student will write a term paper of roughly ten pages or become involved with a term project dealing with an environmental topic of his/her choice.
