This course will give students the opportunity to learn and connect with the central issues of environmental science. This is a course primarily for the non-scientist. The basic concepts of ecology, geography, chemistry, economics, ethics, policy, and many other disciplines will be used to examine the overarching role that humans play in our planet's environmental problems and successes. The laboratory exercises will allow students to use hands-on, field, and/or Internet resources to collect and evaluate qualitative and quantitative data regarding the human-environment relationship. Lifestyle examination, ethical considerations, and critical analysis of individual contributions to local and global impacts in regards to environmental sustainability will be emphasized in the laboratory portion of this course.
