ENV 296T - Topic: Sustainable Living in Our World

Course Description: This course will examine how psychology and other social sciences can contribute to a sustainable future through the study of attitudes, values, knowledge, and behavior associated with environmental problems of the 21st century. Readings and class discussions will apply theoretical perspectives and empirical findings to subjects such as environmental justice, development of environmental identity and ethics, perception of risk, and the benefits of nature experience. Field trips will offer opportunities to explore sustainability at the local level. For their final project students will conduct a detailed study of an environmental problem on campus or in the neighborhood through collection of both archival and field data, and will propose a strategy for change.
