BIO 153 Principles of Environmental Science


3 cr.


BIO 101 or CHEM 101/CHEM 105 or GEOL 101.

Course Description

Finding effective solutions to most environmental problems requires an understanding of sound science and engineering, good public policy, an appreciation of political and economic reality, and an ethical sense of the relationship between humans and the natural world. The interrelationships among these principles provide the unifying theme for this course, which will be covered in five parts. 

BIO 101 or CHEM 101, followed by this course, would meet the General University Requirements for the Natural Science Perspective.


This is a one semester course without a lab.
