Subject: SCI 10400 Introduction to Environmental Biology (GenEd)
Credits: 3 (Class 2, Lab 2)
Offered: Fall, Summer
Description: A survey of human impacts on natural environments. This course assumes very little prior knowledge in ecology, and thus serves for non-biology major students who wish to satisfy their lab science requirements. Topics include basic concepts of ecology, interactions between human and natural environment, human wellness in relation to environmental pollution, natural resource conservation and management, modern environment technology, and current environmental issues in our society. Lecture material is reinforced and expanded upon in laboratory exercises and field trips in ecology, environmental health, pollution, and resource conservation. This course will not count toward a biology degree.
