How humans interact with the environment has always played a key role in shaping the climate and the environment. Also,
describing the spatial aspects of these interactions is vital in understanding the human-environment system, a critical aspect in
measuring the results of human activities on the natural environment. Hence this course, will use global examples to explore the
underlying social, economic, and political factors that affect the ways in which humans interact with the physical environment. This will
require knowledge on basic features of climate systems, ecosystems, environmental sustainability, environmental/resource management
and the physical environment.
The course would involve lectures, seminars, poster presentations, group and individual assignments, discussion forums and exams.
Overall, it is anticipated that this course would equip students with the knowledge that can start careers in environmental management, and enable students to make informed decisions on life choices as it relates to living on planet Earth.
