The goal of this course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing these problems.  Environmental Science is a challenging interdisciplinary course; it incorporates a wide variety of topics from different areas of study.  However, strong emphasis is placed on several unifying themes, including:  scientific problem-solving, energy conversions in ecosystems, change of natural systems over time, human impact on natural systems, the scientific, social, and cultural context of environmental issues, and development of sustainable environmental practices.  This is a rigorous introductory College Environmental Science course, and students' goals should include Advanced Placement Testing. Laboratory activities are conducted weekly. The Environmental Science course requires a strong background in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, as well as Algebra.
