All different sciences combine to make up the complexities of environmental science and students embarking on this journey will gain a comprehensive understanding of how these interconnected disciplines all interact to create the environment we occupy. Students will take an in-depth look at the function of this planet earth, its atmosphere, composition and structure as well as the inhabitants that occupy it. The class will explore various toxic substances that can affect the delicate balance that results from this complex interconnectivity and understand how just the slightest alteration in one aspect can affect the whole.
