ENVS105/Lecture/M01 - Environmental Ethics | Credits 3.00
At heart, all environmental controversies are composed of ethical dilemmas. For example, how much value should be placed on endangered species? What is the equitable way to control greenhouse gas emissions? What moral obligations do we have to non-human animals? This humanities course will function as a framework for analyzing the belief systems that underlie environmental controversies and discussing application of ethical theories to environmental decisions. Ultimately it will ask the student to articulate their own ethical approach to the natural world. Local and global issues are addressed. Intended for all students, regardless of major field of study. The course may be used for a liberal arts, humanities, or unrestricted elective requirement. It will not satisfy a science elective requirement. ENVS 105 fulfills the SUNY General Education Humanities requirement. Prerequisites: MATH 090 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 100 and RDNG 116 if required by placement testing. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.)
