ENV 330 - Environmental Studies: Creating Sustainable Societies

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): SCI 101  and SCI 102 
This course is designed to help the student consider how human societies must change in order to create a long-term sustainable interdependent relationship between humans and the rest of the ecosphere. Current rates of human population growth, habitat destruction, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, soil erosion and desertification, extinction of species, air and water pollution, living and mineral resource depletion, and waste production point towards an unsustainable future without significant changes. The scientific, social, economic, ethical, political, religious, social justice, and technological aspects of the problems and their solutions will be considered. Students will be challenged to participate in the creation of an ecologically sustainable future. This is a required course for the B.A. in liberal studies.
