Animals and the Environment – 32629/34484 – THEO 030

Professor: Chris Steck

This half-semester module will examine the connections between climate change and animal life through a Christian lens. Among the topics that will be considered: how Christians understand the role of animals and human responsibilities to them; recent scientific insights into the lives of animals; the impact of climate change on animal¬†life; the role that farm animals and food production play in environmental degradation; and ethical reflection on the proceeding issues. Note: students do not need to take the first module (THEO 024 “Theology and the Environment”) before taking this one.
