An introduction to general and living systems theory as an effective paradigm for
engaging in change processes at different scales in both biological and social domains.
Particular attention is given to how systems of all scales transform into new systems,
leading to an exploration of environmental, social, and cultural change processes.
The course provides interwoven strands of information, theory, and application from
the sociocultural, ecological, spiritual, political, economic, and personal/contemplative
spheres. Theory is anchored in lived experience through personal and group work, field
learning in the social and natural sciences, and problem-solving. Required for MA
