Human Ecology is the interdisciplinary study of the relationships between humans and their natural and cultural environments.

The purpose of this course is to build a community of learners that explores the question of human ecology from the perspectives of the arts, humanities, and sciences, both in and outside the classroom.

By the end of the course students should be familiar with how differently these three broad areas ask questions, pose solutions, and become inextricably intertwined when theoretical ideas are put into practice. In the end, we want students to be better prepared to create their own human ecology degree through a more in-depth exploration of the courses offered at College of the Atlantic. We will approach this central goal through a series of directed readings and activities.
