Что я буду изучать?

Overview

Apply a critical lens to understanding environmental issues and potentially solving environmental problems at the heart of today’s modern world.

Gain the knowledge of theories, concepts, and terms needed to understand the complex relationship between ecosystems and human activities. Learn how to apply a critical lens in understanding the complexities of environmental issues and how these relate to our lifestyles and choices. The main goal is to encourage transformative lifestyle changes at the individual and societal levels.

Examine and analyze real-world human and environmental issues such as, the overdependence on fossil fuels, natural resource extraction, and climate change as they impact ecosystems, the built environment and human health.

Study the effects that Northern Ontario’s mining industry had, and continues to have, on the environment, as well as successful restoration policies and practices used in the area.

Question unsustainable resource use and understand environmental issues from a variety of perspectives including philosophy, law, history, and Indigenous studies.

Students will benefit from melding academic approaches and understanding with current and unfolding real world issues. This is done by identifying, examining and analyzing human/environmental issues around such things as, but not limited to, the Alberta Tar Sands, natural resource extraction, and climate change as they may impact ecosystem and human health. Students will also gain hands on field experience through a field work course and, perhaps, a fourth year thesis.

Other possibilities at other institutions include: environmental studies/sciences, sustainable development, geography, etc. Environmental issues are in the news every day. It is important that citizens can apply a critical lens in understanding these issues and are able to relate them to their lifestyles and that of society at large. To do this, citizens need to be equipped with knowledge of the theories, concepts and terms in order to understand the complex relationships between the natural and human systems. Students who excel and enjoy the Environmental studies at LU will recognize the importance of understanding environmental issues from a variety of perspectives including philosophy, law, history and indigenous studies. Students will, as a result, become agents of change for environmental challenges that they will encounter during their lives.
