  • This text will challenge you to develop critical thinking skills for confronting global issues and may even impact the way you approach your daily life. Environmental science is an interdisciplinary field that draws heavily on the sciences but assumes that humanity (or any other group of organisms) maintains a central focus. This course will overview some basic concepts of the “hardsciences,” (chemistry, biology, et cetera) and will then focus on issues that confront humanity today.
