Environmental Biology is in essence a study of human ecology. It provides the student with an understanding of the earth's living and non-living resources and the effects that an ever-increasing human population has imposed on the planet by exploiting those resources. The course will also incorporate the role that humans play in uncovering solutions to environmental problems. This course integrates biological sciences such as biology and ecology with socio-economic fields of study such as sociology, political science, philosophy, ethics, and economics. No lab class is offered or required for this course.
