ENVS 80.11 Social Ecological Systems: Theory and Methods

The concept of social ecological systems (SES) provides a useful theoretical framework for confronting modern environmental challenges. This course uses the SES model to explore natural resource and conservation challenges across a range of historical, social, and political contexts. Case studies will compare and contrast the Global North and South, with special emphasis on the Upper Valley and sub-Saharan Africa. Through discussions, lectures, field activities and independent projects, students will develop a multidisciplinary skills “toolbox” for SES research.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
