Patterns of human settlement and consumption have reached a point of critical environmental stress that requires concerted action at local, national and global levels. Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) is an interdisciplinary concentration focusing on the complex relationships between humans and the environment including urban settings. How are critical environmental resources such as water, biodiversity and the air we breathe affected by urbanization and urban sprawl? How can we reconcile the anthropocentric world we live in with the limits of growth? This introductory core course will provide an overview of the interdisciplinary questions of environmental conservation and sustainable development by exploring their scientific, economic, political, cultural, and ethical implications. Course materials will range from international to local examples of topics such as post-disaster relief, post-conflict reconstruction, and adaptation planning for climate change through case studies, readings, and visits to relevant sites and projects in the Hudson Valley. Students will be introduced to the key concepts, technology and various professional aspects of the growing field of sustainable development. Practitioners in urban and environmental fields and faculty members will be invited to introduce different disciplinary perspectives based on their work. Students interested in concentrating in EUS should take this course.
