SCI 210 SC: Energy & Its Impact on Global Society
Energy is one of several new science courses offered at Saint Leo University as part of University Explorations: the name of our new general education curriculum. On behalf of the department of mathematics & sciences, we welcome you to this course.
Why should I take this course?
Energy is the single most important topic that
will impact society in this century. In the twenty-first century, it is essential for
every person to develop an understanding of energy. As consumers of
energy, and decision-making citizens in matters related to energy and
its effects on the environment and society, our graduates should have an
appropriate understanding and knowledge of the issues related to energy and the environment.
Energy consumption has been growing exponentially, mirroring a society's state
of development, while at the same time impacting our environment in
many important and sensitive ways. To exercise sound decision making
requires us to use critical thinking and reflection about core values
like community and responsible stewardship to safeguard our natural resources and preserve planet Earth.
Let the journey begin.
