Most RC courses are open to LS&A students and may be used to meet distribution requirements.

The quest for harmony between humans and the natural world requires understanding of nature, society, and our individual selves. The program in Environmental Studies encourages students to supplement their training in particular academic disciplines by exploring aspects of natural science, social science, and the humanities. The Program is not a concentration program, although a student may emphasize environmental studies in the LS&A Individual Concentration Program (ICP).

Environmental Studies 123, 124, and 240 offer broad overviews of the field and serve as introductions to more advanced work. Environmental Studies 420 and 421 offer opportunities for independent study. In these courses the student is responsible for defining a plan of study, enlisting others with similar interests if appropriate, and locating a faculty member willing to supervise the work. Environmental Studies 450 is a Capstone Seminar providing the opportunity for seniors, particularly those pursuing ICPs, to work together to compare diverse perspectives on human values and the environment.

Courses on environmental issues are offered by many different departments and programs in LS&A as well as in other colleges of the university. Students interested in the environment should explore each issue of the Time Schedule thoroughly, because many appropriate courses are offered at irregular intervals under unpredictable headings. Of particular interest are some of the University Courses.

Prerequisites & Distribution: One introductory course in environmental studies or permission of instructor. (2-4). (Excl).

Credits: (2-4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Geography is a discipline that emphasizes spatial relationships, locations, patterns, and distributions. Geographers study where various human activities and physical features are located on the earth's surface and why they are there. In this course we will explore the fundamental concepts of environmental geography (focusing on major earth systems) and investigate the ways different cultures utilize and interact with the physical environment. With the advancement of technology humans have significantly increased their impact on the physical landscape. In light of this modern reality, we will pay particular attention to such contemporary issues as population growth, development, resource use, and pollution.
