EVR 1001C - Introduction to Environmental Science


3 credits
Prerequisites: SB1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of all Developmental courses
Environmental science is an interdisciplinary study of interactions between the environment - physical, chemical and geological systems - and living organisms.  Special emphasis is given to understanding the basic requirements of life and how human activities can degrade ecosystem services.  Students learn about the rapidly changing earth by examining local and global case studies, and develop ideas for conserving biodiversity and living sustainably.  Assignments may incorporate data analyses, satellite mapping, field trips, habitat monitoring, and laboratory activities.
