Description:
Every day, millions of human and natural activities are altering the planet on which we live. Environmental Science provides an opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the environmental challenges that humanity is facing today and our need to develop a sustainable relationship with our planet and its resources. This course focuses on the application of biological, chemical, and physical principles to the study of contemporary environmental issues such as air and water pollution, global climate change, hazardous and solid waste, alternative energy resources, soils, deforestation, biodiversity, and endangered species. Using a combination of traditional hands-on laboratory exercises, modern web-based animations and simulations, and service learning opportunity, this course offers a core laboratory experience that complements the classroom portion through firsthand observations of environmental principles.
