Course Level

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
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those systems.
    • 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.

This course will investigate the physical processes, origins, as well as the human and economic impacts caused by natural disasters. Students will examine earthquakes, volcanism, severe weather, climate change, wildfires, and floods among other natural catastrophic phenomenon. They will have the opportunity to access information from government agencies and universities involved in the study of these phenomena.
