Course Title: ENVIRONMENTAL SOCIOLOGY
Environmental sociology examines the large-scale narrative on environmental issues. This narrative conveys the natural connections between people, animals, minerals, land, water, and plants. It also introduces social constructs: pollution, overconsumption, resource depletion, habitat loss, risky technology, and rapid population growth. This course examines the social significance of these and other environmental conceptualizations from the standpoint of culture, ideology, moral values, and social inequality.
