Department: Science
Teachers: Robb Gorr
Open to: Juniors, Seniors
Length: 2 Semesters

Prerequisite: high achievement in science and recommendation of science department Advanced Placement Environmental Science is an integrated science course taught at the first-year college level. This class requires dedicated, highly self-motivated learners who have the ability and study skills to work independently. The AP Environmental Science course is designed to be the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course in environmental science. Unlike most other college introductory-level science courses, environmental science is offered from a wide variety of departments including geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry and geography. The APES course is a rigorous science course that emphasizes scientific principles and analysis while also touching on the sociological and political perspectives. The course is intended to enable students to undertake, as first year-college students, a more advanced study of topics in environmental science or alternatively, to fulfill a basic requirement for a laboratory science and thus free time for taking other courses.
