Master of Environmental Studies/Science - Perspectives on the Environment

ENST 5116  Perspectives on the Environment




This course will explore the philosophy and ideas of the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities, with respect to their application in defining the causes, consequences of and solutions to environmental problems. Students will pursue a critical understanding of the values and limitations of these different approaches to studying human-environment interactions. The course will elucidate different ways of thinking about environmental problems, comparing and contrasting the scientific method and its application in natural and social sciences to humanistic approaches. Students will be challenged to consider these different paradigms and think beyond the boundaries of their individual background disciplines.
