Description: 

This module will introduce students to the biology of conservation issues as they relate to environmental studies. Core concepts will include evolution, biodiversity, ecology, conservation, land and wildlife management, ecological restoration, climate change, and pertinent U.S. laws and regulations.

Through a combination of lectures, discussion groups, and readings, students will develop a broad understanding of conservation and environmental issues on a global and local scale. Combined with case studies, handling/viewing plants and wildlife specimens, and conducting independent research, students will interact and engage with abstract concepts on a direct level. Throughout this module, students will hone the analytical, research, and presentation skills necessary to design and deliver a capstone research project/presentation outlining a conservation issue of their choice.
