Global Problems of Population Growth

MCDB 150 - Spring 2009

by Robert Wyman


This survey course introduces students to the important and basic material on human fertility, population growth, the demographic transition, and population policy. Topics include the human and environmental dimensions of population pressure, demographic history, economic and cultural causes of demographic change, environmental carrying capacity and sustainability. Political, religious and ethical issues surrounding fertility are also addressed. The lectures and readings attempt to balance theoretical and demographic scale analyze with studies of individual humans and communities. The perspective is global with both developed and developing countries included.
