Challenging students to understand the roles between ecosystems
Human Ecology has its theoretical foundation in ecological anthropology, which studies human adaptation to the natural and social world through the processes of evolution, physiology, individual behavior, and culture. Scholars in this field grapple with understanding the human role within ecosystems in the past, present, and future. Theories in human ecology inform applied disciplines such as conservation biology, policy and management, agroecology, ecological design, and ecological economics. Students have opportunities to explore ways in which humans interact with their surroundings, through ethnobotany, human health and wellness, and ecopsychology. As they strive to create a more sustainable future, students rise to the challenge of evaluating their values and actions.
