ESSC 100 - Earth Resource Challenges


1 unit(s)
(Same as ESCI 100 , ENST 100 , and GEOG 100 ) This course combines the insights of the natural and social sciences to address a topic of societal concern. Geographers bring spatial analysis of human environmental change, while Earth scientists contribute their knowledge of the diverse natural processes shaping the Earth’s surface. Together, these distinctive yet complementary fields contribute to comprehensive understandings of the physical limitations and potentials, uses and misuses of the Earth’s natural resources. Each year the topic of the course changes to focus on selected resource problems facing societies and environments around the world. When this course is team-taught by faculty from Earth Science and Geography, it serves as an introduction to both disciplines.

Prerequisite(s): Open only to freshmen; satisfies college requirement for a Freshman Writing Seminar.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods.
