BIO 201 Environmental Issues and Science

3 Credits

This course introduces students to various fundamental chemical and biological principles that pertain to specific environmental issues. The changes affecting the earth’s environment are due primarily to human actions. The goals of this course, therefore, include learning about the problems and consequences of altering the environment and understanding the nature of science and scientific experimentation. Students explore the social, political, and economic issues related to these scientific findings as they address the ideas of eco-justice, environmental health, etc. A service-learning project is also completed that results in action proposals to redress environmental problems that are discovered through scientific investigations.

Prerequisite(s): BIO 107 /BIO 117 ; Concurrent with BIO 211 .
