PSC 140 - Introduction to Environmental Studies (3 Cr.)

(ES 140) (GEN. ED. #11) (LER–ENV)
An introductory course intended to broaden and deepen understanding of the environmental issues facing humanity today. The course focuses on how human institutions and ways of living create—as well as offer resources for solving—the problems that we face. We examine a selection of topics that have become central environmental issues of our time: climate change, biodiversity loss and conservation, food production, energy and sustainable development. We then consider how contemporary social activists and thinkers are defining central problems and questions. Finally we investigate our role in creating humanity’s collective social-environmental future. Fall and spring semesters. Department.
