Introduction to Environmental Science


About This Course

This is an introductory environmental science course that explores the relationship between people and the natural world.

Environmental impacts on Earth come from the number of people and the amount and types of resources that they use. By studying human populations, rates of resource consumption and the impact of different types of resources we will gain an understanding of how humans impact Earth.
