NTSS 303-01 “Wild Injustice: Global Environmental Citizenship,” Dr. Balmer, TR 1330-1445 (CRN 14481)
Since the mid-18th century the human population has grown 10-fold to more than 7 billion. Human infrastructure, agriculture, and industrialization have transformed more than half of the planet’s land surface, polluted the world’s oceans, altered the Earth’s atmosphere and climate, and sparked what some are calling Earth’s sixth mass extinction. Many scientists believe humans now rival, or in some cases, exceed the forces of nature, and will push the planet beyond critical tipping points by the end of the century. In this interdisciplinary course exploring Earth’s future we’ll discuss the driving forces and impacts of global ecological changes from sociological and scientific perspectives, and our personal responsibility as ‘environmental citizens’ to prevent them. We’ll examine what constitutes responsible environmental action and develop skills for participating effectively, individually and collectively, as global citizens to protect our only home: planet Earth.

NTSS 303-02 Biology, Environment & Law, Dr. James Berry, TR, 1100-1215 James Berry (CRN 14952) 
This course will explore the ways that the legal system protects and regulates biological systems in the environment. We will examine the profound influence that environmental laws have on species, ecosystems, and landscapes, and the effects of the regulation of air, water, and land in maintaining biodiversity, sustainability, and ecosystem health.
