Pollution Solutions

Today, contaminants enter our water, air, and land through many routes. This course is broken into these three sections (water, air, and land) as students pursue issues surrounding pollution in the environment including how and why pollution occurs. The course investigates the sources of various pollutants and the environmental and health effects of exposure to these contaminants. Students investigate potential solutions to pollution including prevention and mitigation. Students participate in and benefit from diverse assignments including case studies, debates/ role-playing, peer-teaching, and facilitated discussions on assigned readings from written texts, documentaries, and topic-specific exhibits.
