An exploration of how concepts like nature, wilderness, and landscape have been incorporated into art. Cross-cultural instances of landscape painting will be placed in their historical contexts. We will then explore artists who incorporate the land into their art, from the site-specific artists of the late twentieth century to artists addressing the ecological concerns of the present day. We will consider Chinese literati painting, European Romanticism, frontier painting and regionalism in the United States, Earthworks, and recent artistic responses to global climate change and the exploitation of natural resources. We will consider how visual arts can not only reflect but also alter societal attitudes and practices.

Influences of humans on the global environment have reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: Completion of BIOL 207 or BIOL 208 or any 100 level GEOL or CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 or permission of the instructor.

Over 50% of the global population lives in cities and the rate of urbanization is predicted to increase. As a result, urban centers are expanding and increasingly peri-urban farms are transitioning to outer-ring suburbs. The development of peri-urban farmland is seemingly at odds to maintain human food security for a growing population. This course will explore fundamental linkages and feedbacks between urban and rural land use, ecosystem and human health, and sustainability. To investigate alternate land use outcomes for peri-urban and urban landscapes, we will expand ongoing partnerships with urban and rural partners to investigate the environmental, social, and economic impact of diversifying peri-urban landscapes to increase local and regional ecosystem resiliency. Prerequisites: Completion of any two (2) 300-level BIOL courses or permission of instructor.

An emphasis on the ways in which people have created, and attempted to solve, environmental problems in different cultural and historical contexts. Examines the roles of the entire spectrum of actors and human communities, including individuals, families, groups and formal organizations, neighborhoods, cities and nations. Students examine how individual dynamics (such as altruism and economic self-interest) and collective dynamics (such as competition, cohesion, social definitional processes and global interdependence) direct humans in their interactions with the environment.

This course explores methods of solving environmental problems. These problems are by nature, interdisciplinary and are rarely addressed in a substantive fashion in traditional science textbooks. In this course, students and faculty work together to develop a working model of a critical earth system or biogeochemical cycle (i.e. the carbon or nitrogen cycle), and learn how to make calculations of human-induced changes to that system. Students from all concentrations of the environmental science major will work together on this interdisciplinary research project using modeling and systems analysis software to more fully understand specific environments and the quantitative methods of assessing challenges to those environments. This course should be taken by all ESCI students during their junior year. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 209 or permission of instructor.

Is environmental destruction, such as the climate crisis, the result of human sin, or part of God's plan to bring about the end of the world? What are the implications of the conviction that God became human and lived on Earth? Can and ought theologians and scientists work together to overcome environmental problems? How is love of neighbor and commitment to the common good tied to care for creation?
