Six credits of History at the 1000 level or 24 credits completed.


HIST 3277, HIST 3275 and HIST 2275


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students examine the cultural and political history of environmentalism. Only once industrialization removed humans and their bodies from the need to wrest daily survival from nature could nature become a source of rest and relaxation and something to be preserved. Topics will include the conservation and environmental movements; the history of parks, protected areas, and wilderness recreation as a form of healthy living; and reactions to industrial and chemical pollution.
