THIS IS A HYBRID COURSE: A hybrid course is where some traditional face-to-face "seat time" has been replaced by online learning activities. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning.
This course explores the human relationship with the natural environment by examining the critical issues that affect the viability and sustainability of natural resources of our planet. Natural resources, their importance, distribution, and impacts from human use and over-use are examined at local, state, national and global levels. The course uses case studies of current-day environmental issues and their relationship to concepts of ecological, air, soil, water, energy, biodiversity, and population dynamics. Issues are examined from viewpoints of scientific theories of environmental impacts as well as human interactions and constituent viewpoints.
