Fall 2011 not offered
|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?
