Encouraging critical thinking in a combined Arts and Science course on the relationship between people and the environment
The Australian National University's course Resources, Environment and Society (SRES1001) was born out of the desire to combine Arts Faculty and Science Faculty approaches to understanding the relationship between people and the environment. While meeting the needs of both Arts and Science students it has also attracted a wide range of students from across all of ANU's faculties. At ANU, about 50 per cent of students are enrolled in a double degree, the most common degree being Arts/Science. In the two years SRES1001 has been running, it has attracted students from 32 different degree programs.
