Nature and Society

Besides defining nature, environment, ecosystems, the module discusses human-nature relationship in gender; religion; political ideology and economics. This multi-disciplinary module is targeted at students from the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Law, Engineering and School of Design and Environment.
