Introduction to Environmental Science
This course is a basic overview of the environmental impacts caused by humans on the natural systems of the Earth: the atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere. We will examine the scientific concepts that underlie the complex interactions occurring among these systems and how our actions endanger Earth’s ecosystems. We will explore what is necessary to sustain our environmental resources so they continue to provide benefit for human beings and other living things on our planet. Fieldwork is incorporated into the regular class time.
