Environmental Issues (3 crs) 

Introduces students to the complexities of environmental problems confronting today's global citizens. Focuses on a series of environmental issues that are, and have been, difficult to resolve. Readings, audiovisual materials, and discussions on three or more environmental controversies are employed to illustrate the many aspects of each issue that should be explored. Students investigate a problem of their choice for presentation to the class in written or oral form. A field trip extends ecological background and provides additional information on a major issue addressed in the course. 

Prerequisites: Concurrent or prior enrollment Liberal Studies 209 or department consent.
