ENV 130: Human Environment Interactions
Get and introduction into human-environment interactions from an anthropological perspective. The course begins with defining the ecosystem and how humans and the actions of humans are part of that ecosystem; creating a human-environment interface. Discover the historical relationship between human and non-human animal species. By examining case studies, this course will examine environmental issues in a variety of geographic contexts (developed and developing countries) and the connections between environmental problems in different locations. Explore the fundamentals of environmental science, anthropology, economics, and cultural ecology as they relate to the interface between humans and their environment.
FOR 130: Introduction to Forensic Science
Get an introduction to the uses and methods of forensic science. This course will examine the types of evidence that result from scientific analysis of a crime scene, the methods used to evaluate this evidence, the limits of these techniques, and the role of the forensic scientist in criminal investigation.
SCI 110: The Biological World and Lab
Introduction to the life-supported systems of nature, emphasizing the diversity and adaptations of organisms in the evolutionary perspective. This course meets three lecture hours and two lab hours per week.
