ENV 300 - Environmental Sciences and Sustainability


(3-4-5)
Prerequisite: BIO 112 
This course consists of a basic introduction to Earth’s capacity to endure human consumption of natural resources and how human consumption of goods and nature’s exploitation has profound consequences for nature’s intricate and delicate balance and the future of human civilization. In this course, students will be introduced to major issues in Environmental Sciences and Sustainability (i.e. global warming, population growth, conservation and energy crisis). The main goal is to show students how the natural habitat is affected by social and environmental conflicts, and how politics influences the outcome of this interaction. Students will be exposed to scientific method in the lab and will be taught to use environmental sciences to evaluate the impact of human activities on the natural habitat.
