SCIE 1105 - Environmental Science


Credit Hours: 4
This course meets twice a week with lecture and activity-based learning during each time period. The course introduces students to the biotic and abiotic world and human’s impact on it. Students will review our current understanding of biology, chemistry and geology and learn how these concepts are applied to environmental science. This knowledge will be used to address current issues in environmental science dealing with specific problems. These activities will be based on real world environmental problems ranging from those of indigenous peoples to global warming. Individuals completing the course will have gained insight into human impact on the environment through an understanding of physical, chemical, and biological principles. They will also develop a greater understanding of human, cultural and societal concerns as related to the environment and will be more able to appreciate cost and benefits related to them.
