Introduction to Environmental Geoscience
Goals for Fall 2008

Learning is not a spectator sport.


Learning requires you to be an active participant in class discussions. I expect you to come to class ready to participate and learn.

The objectives* of the course are to develop:

  • An understanding and appreciation of the major environmental issues facing the world and Texas;
  • An understanding of how society influences environmental issues, and how the issues influence society;
  • An appreciation for how scientific solutions differ from political solutions;
  • An understanding of important Earth systems and how they interact;
  • A familiarity with how different scientific approaches can provide insight into environmental issues;
  • An ability to critically read scientific and popular literature related to environmental geoscience.
