5 credits

Students are introduced to the major concepts in astronomy, meteorology, and geology with selected examples of interrelationships in this course. Students explore Earth's air, water, and physical processes as they shape the physical world. They engage in assignments that emphasize the relationship of the study of Earth sciences to the world in which they live, such as an evaluation of the world's energy and environmental problems. Through such assignments, students develop and demonstrate an understanding of fundamental scientific principles. They also gain the knowledge needed to understand and express major issues that affect the health of their community. Additionally, students develop an appreciation for the natural processes that occur on Earth and how they impact and affect the natural world.
