B.A. in Social Ecology
Social Ecology can be defined as the interactions within the social, institutional, and cultural contexts of people-environment relations that make up well-being. Social Ecology’s motivating philosophy is a pragmatic one—the most persistent ills of society (sprawl, malnutrition, deforestation, urban violence, waterborne disease, obesity, housing insecurity, and countless others) seem to resist the prescriptions emerging from uni-disciplinary research.

Is social ecology the study of everything? No, but it is a manner of studying things. It concerns how the different objects of study relate to, bump into, and change each other such that the social phenomenon cannot be attributed to any of its objects.
The UCI School of Social Ecology is an internationally recognized pioneer in developing interdisciplinary approaches to social problems that encourage flexibility and independent thinking among faculty and students, and nourish collaboration across different fields and with people of many different experiences.
