SENS 100 Intro-Sustainability & Environ

Prerequisite: Completion or waiver of MAT 012

The concept of sustainability is explored as it relates to human-dominated and natural ecosystems at spatial scales from local to global. The major environmental problems facing the United States and the world are evaluated in terms of interactions among ecological, social, economic, and spiritual factors. Emphasis is placed on understanding the methods by which sustainability is evaluated and actions that can be taken to increase the resilience of a community or society. Local ecosystems will be used as a context for learning. Two lectures or laboratory/field exercises each week. Practical Reasoning (PR).
