01:381:101 Introduction to Environmental Studies

The Ebola virus outbreak in western Africa, hurricane Sandy in New Jersey, and droughts and fires in California are a few examples of recent, high-profile events that demonstrate fundamental connections and interdependencies between human and natural systems. Human choices and actions fundamentally transform, and are transformed by, environmental processes, with critical implications for ecosystem and human health, prospects for maintaining secure livelihoods, the equitable distribution of resources, and long-term sustainability. In this introductory environmental studies course, students will gain a foundation in the constitutive fields of environmental studies through a review of biophysical, social science, and humanities-based understandings of the environment.
