Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I entered Allegheny thinking I would major in English or Psychology. But then I took ES 110 and it completely changed my world, leading me to major in environmental studies and ultimately to a job with the National Park Service and graduate studies in landscape conservation.
The course provides an essential overview of environmental science competencies. Particularly, the course focuses on understanding climate change as well as the impact of population growth, globalization, technology, affluence, and poverty on the environment.

Advice for students:
This is an introductory course, so it isn't extremely difficult in terms of coursework. But some of the concepts introduced can be fairly surprising if you are not aware of the environmental crisis. Enter with an open mind. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about some of the most pressing political and environmental issues facing our society.
