A tantárgy szakmai tartalma: The course is planned for students who would like to receive both an insight into the underlying principles, and a broad overview of the working of the natural environment and human interactions with it. Specifically, this course is designed to provide an overview of the nature and cause of environmental challenges and offer a description of potential solutions, such as they exist.
It is often stated that humankind faces an ‘environmental crisis’, and media increasingly focus on the various challenges faced by humanity in dealing with changes in the natural environment. Although much of this information is based on fact, the increasing quantity and diversity of information about the environment can not only inform but also overwhelm.
Environmental Studies is designed to familiarise students with basic ecological and scientific principles and features of the living world that enable deeper understanding of the natural and man-made environment. The course then introduces students to sector-specific (air, water, land) environmental problems such as degradation of natural resources through pollution, poor resource management or over consumption, and then describes extant, emerging or potential solutions.

Évközi tanulmányi követelmények: Students will be required, in teams of 3 or 4 persons, to complete one presentation to the class on a subject related to the course material –the topic of which will be discussed in the first class of the semester.
