ES 311 - Environmental Analysis and Statistics (4 Cr.)

(Formerly ES 210) (GCR DA-AC)
This course provides students with an understanding of descriptive and inferential statistics and systems thinking approaches critical for understanding environmental issues. Specifically, this course employs case studies and projects of topical issues at the intersection of ecological questions and social institutions. These case studies and projects will permit students to apply interdisciplinary inquiry, particularly through the use of quantitative and theoretical frameworks of analysis. Emphasis is placed on cultivating the ability to understand disciplinary abstraction, to apply such knowledge to understand environmental problems, and to provide solutions to address them. The course is intended to support development of key intellectual and practical tools for future careers in environmental studies.  Prerequisite: ES 100  and ES 140 ; and completion of GCR - Data Analytics Foundational Level course.  Fall semester. Mora.
