3 Semester Units

Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary approach to environmental sci­ence, focusing on the interrelatedness of humans and the natural world. Historical perspectives, economic and political realities, var­ied social experiences and ethnic backgrounds are integrated into the identification of major issues and the search for possible solutions.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Define sustainability, sound science and stewardship—the three unifying themes in environmental science.
  • Examine the international and U.S. measures taken to mitigate climate change and evaluate their effectiveness.
  • Evaluate how our national energy policies encourage both renewable energy and energy conservation.
  • Explain how the science of ecology can be described as a hierarchy of questions, describe the questions different types of ecologists ask, and anticipate different experiments they might do, all within the same natural systems.
