|School:||Redeemer University College|
|Field of Study:||Environmental Science
|Description:||God has created and sustains this world, yet has entrusted His creation to humanity to steward it by developing its potential while simultaneously caring for and protecting it. However, as we look at the world around us, we can see that humanity faces significant environmental challenges that are complex, multi-faceted, and of ever-increasing importance. As you study nature and how humans interact with God’s creation, grow in your calling as a steward of the earth and its natural resources. You will learn to integrate scientific, technological, social, political, economic, theological, philosophical and perhaps even artistic perspectives to gain a deep understanding of current environmental issues.
The scientific aspects of environmental issues are emphasized, with a strong focus on biology and chemistry. In addition to courses about contemporary environmental issues, sustainability, and environmental philosophy, you will learn about ecology and field biology, chemical analysis of water and soil, environmental impact assessments, geographical information systems (GIS), and more.
