Water (Fall Session 1)

September 18, 2017 - October 29, 2017

Water—its location, condition, and use—is a critical environmental issue. Central to all ecosystems, water is essential to life as we know it. It shapes our planet on every level, from the chemical properties of the H2O molecule to the central role of water in global climate. This course will focus on why water is such a critical resource, the impact of human consumption on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the social, economic, and environmental implications of water management. Along with a solid grasp of these water-related issues, students should come away grounded in the science that underlies all environmental studies. They will be able to: understand the interrelationships between living things and the ecosystems they inhabit; analyze environmental problems caused by changing natural conditions and by human activity; and evaluate ways to resolve and/or prevent these problems.
