SCS 105 introduces principles of environmental science with a purposefully Christian perspective. Course topics include understanding our environment, evolution, species interactions, human populations, biomes, environmental conservation, environmental health, pollution, energy and environmental policy, and sustainability. An important goal is to gain an understanding of the environment and our place in it. Underlying this course will be the concept of biological stewardship – the idea that all humans are required by God to be careful and thoughtful in our usage of Earth’s limited resources. There are many voices saying how we can best live on Earth; it is necessary to personally evaluate and understand what God says about this also.
