This course provides an in-depth look at human and environmental systems interactions. It also introduces concepts of environmental ethics and justice by exploring diverse ways humans perceive and engage with their environment. The course is the first of two foundation courses in environmental studies. As such, students need familiarity with environmental concepts, either through ENVS 202 or through Huxley major prerequisites. Some students with self-designed majors or Huxley minors may also be well prepared and can enter through instructor permission.
