HONS 321 - A Sustainable Brain for Global Change

3 credits Crosslisted With: ENSC 321  
Global change concerns such as pollution, species extinction, and climate change are commonly referred to as “environmental problems,” yet at the root of these issues is human behavior. Ecologically unsustainable behaviors are influenced by the thoughts, attitudes, feelings, values, and decisions of individuals and the communities and societies they compose, and are not immutable. This course examines methods to accelerate sustainability solutions drawing on research in psychology and sociology, and discusses how human values shaping global behavior paradigms could be re-shaped by fostering sustainable behaviors that promote a more sustainable future.
