This standard level course, spanning two years, is a research based course where students will apply the scientific method and research skills to produce an inquiry into environmental issues. The focus of this course is on integrating concepts and perceptions from a variety of academic disciplines. This course requires and relies on scientific principles, hands-on practical lab, field studies and the intention that students develop an informed and responsible position on local and global environmental issues. Enrolling in this course is a commitment to four trimesters, one junior year and three senior year.
