Environmental Concerns in Perspective
An interdisciplinary, multiple-perspective approach to the study of environmental concerns. In this course, students study the interaction of human beings and their social, political, and economic institutions with the natural environment. Issues such as air pollution, water pollution, and land management are discussed from the perspectives of both the natural sciences and the social sciences. Local, regional, national, international, and historical perspectives on these issues are also discussed.Three sections of ES 100 are held in the fall, and one section is held in the spring. Lectures are typically held on Tuesdays, while discussions are typically held on Thursdays.
