CULT11017  Society and Environment

This course is recommended especially for Education students studying in the learning area of Society and Environment. It functions as an introduction to this area, and also as an introduction for those students taking the Society and Environment plan as part of their education programs. The course will enable students, in an introductory way, to identify the ways both primary and secondary evidence influence the development of ideas from ancient to modern times, and explore how an evaluation of historical accounts reflects the culture in which they were constructed; to articulate the impact of change on environments, the relationships in and between natural systems, and future environmental issues; to understand the relationship between social and ecological systems; to identify the cultural significance of place, and the way that various cultures inhibit or promote diversity; and to articulate issues related to social justice and the democratic process, and paradigms of power that govern these issues.
