PEPS/NREM 210 Course Module Website

This class is an analysis of our environment with an emphasis on understanding relationships and interactions of physical, biological, technological, and political components using scientific methods of inquiry. Topics covered include food supply and safety, water quality, pollution control, biodiversity, and environmental policy among others. This course is open to nonmajors.

NREM/PEPS 210 is offered face-to-face during the Fall semester, and due to high enrollment, the instructors wanted to offer an online version of the course during Spring and Summer semesters.  This course was designed to meet the needs of students who desire a high degree of flexibility in their coursework, as students progress through lesson modules and exams at their own pace.  Students are engaged through a combination of narrated lectures and videos.
