Answer: Formerly with the number ESC110, ESRM100/ENVIR100 is designed primarily as an elective to meet the Natural World (NW) and the Individuals and Society (I&S) requirements. There is no pre-requisite except an interest in the Environment. However, we will give students a broad exposure to Environmental Science, ranging from the general structure of the earth and how it works to issues like biological diversity, pollution and global warming. Case examples range from local to global environmental issues. This is a fun course for students and the instructor, and we think we will change your present opinion of environmental science.
ESRM100/ENVIR110 is taught as an internet course with lectures downloaded through the internet or as a lecture course. Information for the current courses can be accessed from http://soilslab.cfr.washington.edu/esrm100/.
