“During the four years of their undergraduate program, students in good standing (not on probation) may enroll in a maximum of eight elective courses to be taken with a grade of P (Pass) or F (Fail). The Pass/Fail option is open for a maximum of two courses per academic year, including summer sessions. For the Pass/Fail option, the academic year is defined as beginning with the start of the fall semester and ending with the end of the second summer session. The course selected for Pass/Fail must be an elective (i.e., it cannot fulfill requirements other than the minimum 122 hours required for the degree, and the requirements for credit hours at the 300-400 level). It may not be used to satisfy any of the College of Arts and Sciences’ general education requirements, nor may it be counted as a part of the student’s concentration area, nor may it be counted toward completion of a minor or certificate program. The course or courses may be used to meet the requirement for courses at the 300-400 level.”

TR 1-2:15 (Student Building 150)
ANTH-E 101 Ecology and Society is a fall course on current environmental issues designed for the non-major (but applicable to the ANTH minor). It carries S&H distribution.
Nearly every day, we hear news of environmental degradation, severe weather events, toxic pollution and impending climate change. How are we to understand this information? What does it mean for our lives?
This course addresses these questions by exploring human-environment relationships from cross-cultural, historical, scientific and ethical perspectives. Through readings and discussion, students will evaluate how societies vary in beliefs and perceptions of nature, and the implications for behavior, decision-making, and environmental change. We will examine current environmental problems and the debates over their causes and possible solutions. Using the concepts of ecological footprint, adaptive capacity, and resilience, we will assess the ramifications of our own choices and behaviors. Do we have moral and ethical responsibilities in our patterns of consumption? Students will be evaluated on reading responses, class participation, assignments, a midterm and a final exam.
