SOC 252 Environmental Sociology

3 hours 

This course explores how people define, create, conceptualize, and respond to environmental problems by using the theoretical and methodological tools of sociology, such as social constructionism and environmental racism. Case studies of a variety of environmental issues from around the country and the world, such as contamination of air (smog, asthma), water (oil spills, declining fisheries), soil (radon, toxic waste), consumerism (over-consumption), and climate change will be considered using these theoretical and methodological tools.
