ENSC 40193 Environmental Stewardship Seminar

Three hours lecture per week. This course examines the case environmental stewardship, defined as the need to make informed and responsible decisions with regard to the planet. Students meet in a seminar-type format and cover broad, integrating themes that then serve as a foundation for topics that address more specific environmental problems, such as global warming, deforestation, sustainable development, and energy depletion. The course exposes students to the foundations necessary to enable them to develop their own environmental ethic.
