This course studies the history and theoretical underpinnings of environmental anthropology as a sub-field within the discipline of anthropology. Students will apply the concepts of ecosystem sustainability and indigenous knowledge as a component of society. Students will also personally engage with environmental problems through independent research, field trips, and/or service learning. This course meets General Education Core Goal 9: Behavioral & Social Sciences; Core Goal 11: Civic Responsibility; and Core Goal 12: Global Perspectives & Diversity.
