Whether you're interested in the hot topic of environmental issues or just looking for one more class to take this fall, now there is an exciting new course at your reach.  No prerequisites needed – it’s open to any and all students, which should enhance the interdisciplinary atmosphere (air quality pun only slightly intended).  
 
"Our Global Environment:  Issues and Challenges" analyzes the relationship between our environment, both natural and man-made, and our health.  You'll investigate what makes something toxic, what factors make an individual more vulnerable to environmental hazards, the policies and federal and state programs involved, and approaches for improving our environment on a local and global scale.
 
It's part pesticides, food contaminants, pollution, disease, and chemical terrorism.
It's also part politics, sociology, and social justice.  
 
No matter your major, this course offers a relevant academic exploration into our chemical-ridden world.  And who knows?  You might even take your newfound knowledge on to a graduate degree in Public Health.  Captain Planet would be proud.
