ENST 3001 - Environmental Issues and Regulations

Hours: 4
This class is designed to provide students with an overview of environmental issues and how specific regulatory programs were developed and implemented as a reaction to environmental, public health and safety risks. Major environmental issues such as surface water quality, environmental impacts from construction and development, hazardous waste disposal practices, etc. will be discussed. After developing a framework of understanding related to the issues, the class will explore how environmental regulations evolved in an effort to mitigate problems related to specific issues. The class will require students to work on individual as well as group projects. The students also will have the opportunity to interact with professionals who have experience working within the regulatory frameworks.
