Introduction to Environmental Science

E&ES 199
Spring 2010
Section: 01  
Certificates: Environmental Studies

We are all part of the environment. The overriding questions will be, How does the nonhuman environment function, and how are humans impacting the environment? Students will be expected to learn basic environmental principles (e.g., cycling of elements and other materials, population dynamics), and consider their own use of resources. The major component of the course will be group research projects addressing major environmental topics, such as, What are effective ways to produce carbohydrates for seven billion people? There will be two group projects, with both a written and an oral component. The class meets for an extra session on Thursdays to allow us to take three field trips and to provide time for group work.
