授業の目的 【日本語】
授業の目的 【英語】
Never before have had humans such a profound impact on the environment. The world population exceeds 7 billion and is growing steadily. Industrial and technological needs for energy and mineral resources are increasing every year. This course aims to review and discuss how humanity is changing the environment. More specifically, the course examines how human activities alter major biogeochemical cycles, and explores past climate change and the relationships between human activities and climate today. Students also learn about the nature and usefulness of geological resources and the environmental threats posed by their extraction and exploitation. The course not only aims to develop a scientific knowledge of important environmental issues, but also to promote the critical evaluation of information sources and the exchange of opinions in class.

There is no specific prerequisite for this course. The content of this course is more closely linked to biology- and earth science-related courses. 
成績評価の方法と基準
Two quizzes aim to evaluate students' understanding of the course content. In addition, students should fulfill the following assignments: (1) two short presentations on current news related to environmental sciences, (2) an essay/review paper, and (3) an oral presentation.
A student who wishes to withdraw from the course needs to inform the teacher by the end of May in order to receive an “Absent” grade. This deadline does not apply to students who drop the class part-way through for an exceptional reason (e.g., illness, accident).
