ES 105 - Environmental Sustainability in Context (2 Cr.)

This course explores the real-life challenges of environmental sustainability through an analysis of complex problems that necessitate the integration of scientific and socio-economic contexts to understand them and to address them. Examples of problems that we will explore relate to transportation, recycling, waste, power generation, and food. The overarching goal of this course is to challenge you to improve your problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in an effort to address environmental sustainability issues at individual, community, and global scales. For that reason, this course requires the use of spreadsheets and basic mathematical calculations. Fall semester. Mora.
