HIST 290 Socioeconomics and History of the Environment

3 Credits

The exponential growth capacity of the human species and the demand-supply relationship that is the basis of environmental managemet are examined. The issue of environmental management, exemplified in such major problems as pollution, resource depletion, and environmental decay, is a focal point of study. It is equally important to understand the environment’s influence on economic production, political structures, and attitudes that enable any society to flourish or collapse. Students analyze the hunter-gatherer, agriculturist, and industrial societies as a means to understand their current place in history.
