20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This unit will examine the interdependent relationship between East Asian society and the natural environment. The course will be in three broad sections. The first will provide an overview of economic and social development in East Asia and its globalisation. The second and third sections will look at the impact of that development on bio-diversity and the Earth's climate. The unit will approach these topics through the development of key concepts in social and environmental studies and the employment of a series of case studies.
