Fall 2019 – ENVST-UA 100 Environmental Systems Science
The Department of Environmental Studies at New York University is searching for 3 Recitation Leaders for Environmental Systems Science (ENVST-UA 100) in Fall 2019:
A comprehensive survey of critical issues in environmental systems science, focusing on: human population; the global chemical cycles; ecosystems and biodiversity; endangered species and wildlife; nature preserves; energy flows in nature; agriculture and the environment; energy systems from fossil fuels to renewable forms; Earth’s waters; Earth’s atmosphere; carbon dioxide and global warming; urban environments; wastes; and paths to a sustainable future. This course is a gateway to the Environmental Studies major and minor, and one of its core courses. It will cover a very significant amount of demanding material, in order to prepare students for upper-level courses. This course will be challenging, and students should expect a steep learning curve. Teaching Assistants will be available to help students along the way.
