Course Description

The goal of the Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.  Environmental science is interdisciplinary; it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Yet there are several major unifying constructs, or themes, that cut across the many topics included in the study of environmental science.  This course will investigate Environmental Science through the lens of Hawaiʻ i’s watersheds or ahupuaʻa and the affects of human activity within them.   This online class is being offered both for credit (BIOL 124) and non-credit (non-credit via CCE) during Fall 2016 as an International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Conservation Campus class for the upcoming World Conservation Congress to be held during September of 2016.
