Environmental Science – Beyond
Discuss the environmental challenges that impact our future, such as land use, pollution, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. This course is centered around achieving global sustainability to meet the needs of a growing human population, while also maintaining natural resources and protecting Earth’s various systems. The short-and long-term consequences of our actions to human health and the environment are also a course focus.
With the collaboration of the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and additional professional partners, this course highlights the research and field experiences of professors, scientists, conservationists, lawyers, and more, while sharing practical and sensible strategies for preserving the delicate balance between land, ocean, air, and life. In addition, this course creates a call to action for students by teaching them how to protect the world’s biodiversity and resources by adjusting the way they live, work, play, and govern in the future.
