This course provides an interdisciplinary overview of the science behind the real world environmental issues and
the basis of creating and maintaining sustainable ecosystems. In this course, students will study the fascinating
feedback loop between the environments and living organisms, including human, through a variety of aspects in cluding geology, oceanography, biology, chemistry, physics, and economics. Through class activities and field trips,
students will be able to analyze the importance of different components of the Earth’s systems in sustaining our
daily lives. Students will also be familiarized with the cutting-edge scientific tools needed to apply critical thinking
and to solve contemporary environmental issues, especially in the context of global climate change. The class is a
foundational course and available for both science and non-science majors
