ENVU 3150 - Environmental Decision-Making

This course provides a broad introduction to environmental decision-making processes with emphasis on understanding the step by step methodologies that can be applied in a number of diverse situations. The class combines analytical methods drawn from the decision sciences and applied ecology with insights from cognitive psychology. By analyzing a series of exigent environmental issues, students learn how to apply appropriate decision methodologies to both complex and simple environmental decisions. The elements of normative, descriptive, and perspective decision strategies are introduced, and students gain hands on experience applying these three decision strategies in different environmental contexts. Decision biases as well as choice architectures are presented, and the implications of personal values, beliefs, and principles for effective decision making are explored.
