The Ecology & Environmental Science course integrates knowledge and methodologies from various biophysical and social science disciplines to understand and address complex environmental issues. With the recognition that environmental science is inherently interdisciplinary, the course will draw upon biology, chemistry, physics, and ecology, as well as psychology, communications, education, economics, and policy studies to understand humanity’s impact on the environment and the complexity that goes into developing truly sustainable solutions. This interdisciplinary approach is crucial for comprehensively studying and tackling the intricate web of interconnected environmental challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution, which require a holistic understanding that transcends the boundaries of individual scientific fields.

Students will meet with habitat restoration experts from a local nonprofit working to protect and restore the San Francisco Bay. In the past, students have performed volunteer citizen monitoring of local waters through sample collection and practice identifying phytoplankton that were subject to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) target HAB organisms monitoring network. Students have also toured the historic UC Botanical Gardens, a 34-acre diverse landscape that is home to over 10,000 types of plants.
