Human Ecology

Human Ecology is the study of the relationship and interactions between humans and their environment. It considers the ecological, evolutionary, historical and socio-political dimensions of different people's engagement with each other and their surrounding environment. The aim of this subject is to better understand the diversity and complexity of such interactions and, by doing so, to make a positive contribution in our understanding and ability to address the cascading ecological and social crises of the 21st century and to our search for a more sustainable future. This degree emphasises an interdisciplinary, holistic and cross-cultural approach to human environmental relationships, integrating social and natural studies on critical thinking about the place of humans on the planet, and the causes and consequences of the present-day ecological crises.
