This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of how we interact with and impact our natural environment. Students will integrate different concepts and perspectives from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, providing a framework for the study of the relationship between humans and the environment. The course will demand from students a balanced understanding of basic scientific concepts, important societal factors (cultural, political, and economic), and the historical and ethical dimensions that influence our decision making, and ultimately, the fate of our planet. A service-learning project will allow students to explore current environmental challenges (e.g., climate change, sustainable agriculture, overfishing, etc.) and seek innovative solutions designed to bring about environmental sustainability for our campus, our communities, and the world.
