Course Level

General/Liberal Education Category
Goal 03 - Natural Science Lab

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Describe the basic institutional arrangements (social, legal, political, economic, religious) that are evolving to deal with environmental and natural resource challenges.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Propose and assess alternative solutions to environmental problems.

An introduction to environmental science and the range of environmental issues that affect people on a global, local and personal level. Topics include sustainability, ecology, biodiversity, solid waste, water pollution, energy sources, air pollution, and climate change. Includes lab. The online version of this course requires students to purchase lab materials. Intended for general education students. Because college-level science courses contain extensive new terminology, many students find it helpful to take LING 111-Vocabulary Study prior to taking this course.
