Advanced Environmental Science (US)

Prerequisites: Biology and Chem Study

Using a systems approach, students study the ways in which humans impact and are impacted by the environment. They explore the science behind major environmental issues and ask how humans can live more sustainably. Students review ecology and evolution, as well as:
•    Human population
•    Environmental health
•    Energy (including fossil fuels, nuclear, and alternative sources)
•    Urbanization
•    Water resources and their pollution
•    Air pollution
•    Global climate change

Students achieve a deeper understanding of current environmental issues and improve their ability to rationally judge environmental arguments.
