ENVS&101|Intro to Environmental Science w/Lab [M/S]
Formerly ENVS 100
A multidisciplinary course designed to provide both the non-science and science major the background necessary to understand environmental problems that have arisen due to human activities. Topics include: food chains, energy production, nutrient cycles, forest and wildlife management, population demographics, air and water pollution, ozone depletion, and global warming. Lab and lecture must be taken concurrently.
ENVS 174|Intro to Meteorology and the Atmosphere [M/S]
An introduction to meteorology, weather, climate, and the atmospheric processes related to air pollution and climate change. Topics include: atmospheric structure, solar radiation, clouds, precipitation, pressure, fronts, hurricanes, air pollution, climate, and global climate change.
Prerequisite: grade of 2.0 or higher in MATH 095 or MATH 098 or MATH 070 or MATH 072 or satisfactory placement test score.
ENVS 310|Environmental Issues [M/S]
Basic concepts of ecology and environmental science are discussed and illustrated through lab experiences and then further elaborated through discussing environmental issues from a strategic business perspective. Discussions include how environmental pressures (e.g. sustainable development) and environmental problems (e.g. global warming, air pollution, waste-disposal), impact corporate mission, competitive strategy, technology choices, product development decisions, production processes, and corporate responsibility.
Prerequisite: meets the criteria for acceptance into a BAS/BSN program, completion of a two-year degree or equivalent, or instructor approval.
