Environmental Science

Environmental Science combines elements of physics, chemistry, and biology to develop an understanding of the interactions of the physical environment and the organisms that live in it, including humans. Understanding these interactions is important for anyone with an interest in science or public policy.

This class introduces central concepts in environmental science and prepares students for further study in the field.

Topics include soils and substrates, nutrient cycling, land use planning, water and hydrology, the atmosphere, climate, and energy resources. Class discussions include current issues in environmental science and provide background for students to better understand these issues.
