Description:
A survey of the dynamics, including humans, that shape our physical and biologic environment, and how they affect life on Earth. Introduction to the science and policy of global and regional environmental issues, including pollution, climate change, and sustainability of land, water, and energy resources. (Cross-listed as GEOL 1305 Environmental Science)
Measurable Learning Outcomes:
Recognize, describe, and quantitatively evaluate earth systems, including the land, water, sea, and atmosphere, and how these function as interconnected ecological systems. Assess environmental challenges facing humans caused by their interaction with the physical and biological environment (e.g., population growth, energy resources, food production, pollution, water and resource use). Acquire a scientific vocabulary and critical thinking skills related to environmental science. Assess the effectiveness and feasibility of environmental policy and its impact.
