Environmental Science

Credits: 1

Prerequisites: biology.


Environmental Science is a broad scientific survey course designed to garner a holistic perspective and improve the student’s ecological literacy. The goal is to ignite systems thinking and develop the skill set needed to discover answers and analyze options, and to use ecological systems as a successful model to help us deal with environmental issues. This perspective and the accompanying skills help build a framework for decision making for use throughout life. The Adirondack park serves as an extension of the classroom for this course.
