ENVS 1101 - Introduction Environmental Science


Corequisite: ENVS 1102  Today’s environmental problems have scientific, social, and political aspects to them. This course, which is required for majors and is suitable for non-majors, will focus on the scientific aspects but will not ignore the other two. The student will be introduced to the geology, biology, physics, and chemistry behind the problems and to the social and political difficulties inherent in dealing with them. Through a combination of lectures, case histories, in-class discussions, and observation of the environmental decision-making process at work, the student will gain an understanding of the complex nature of environmental problems and of the choices that must be made in solving them. May be taken concurrently with ENVS 1102  Environmental Science Laboratory for laboratory science credit. Environmental science majors and minors must take ENVS 1102  concurrently. 3 credits
