Course Summary

ENVS 160 is a course that focuses on connecting core ideas such as the ecotypes axes and classic vs. contemporary thought to other aspects of environmental studies, and many environmental publications. It focuses on looking at environmental issues with a situated approach in order to understand how they fit into their geographic contexts and global systems.
