Summer '22 Course Spotlight: People & the Environment

February 14, 2022

MSU Sociology is highlighting its Summer 2022 Courses that are open for all undergraduates. This week, we focus on ISS 310: People and Environment with Dr. Ben Marley, who explains the course:
"By most scientific accounts our society is environmentally and socially unsustainable. How do we explain the civilization crisis we are experiencing? How do we resolve the crisis? In ISS 310 we will diagnose the root causes of the crisis and evaluate solutions. Specifically, we will focus on improving well-being and environmental sustainability through alternative modes of organizing society and nature. We will explore topics such as capitalist growth, mass consumerism, extractive development, and post-capitalist strategies of existence. "
