ENV 121 - Environmental Science: A Global Concern


3 Credits

Environmental issues are one of the most pressing problems for society to address in the 21st century. This course presents the scientific foundations of how the environment works and will begin by studying how the principles of biology, chemistry, and physics interact to shape the environment around us. Students will learn the organization of biological populations, communities, and biomes and how these function with the physical environment. The course will then focus on how humans interact with the environment. Topics in this portion of the course will include sustainable management and conservation, as well as evaluating and managing threats to human and environmental health in a changing climate. The associated laboratory course, ENV 121L , is required within the major.
