CVC611/CVC612 - AP Environmental Science
2 Semesters 1 Credit Fulfills: CTE & Lab Science

Prerequisite: Biology and completion of or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry

The AP Environmental Science course provides students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world. The course helps students identify and analyze natural and human-induced environmental problems. It enables them to learn how to assess the risks associated with these problems and evaluate alternative solutions for resolving and preventing them. To accomplish this goal, the AP Environmental Science Course and Exam Description defines concepts, skills, and understandings required by representative colleges and universities for granting college credit and placement. This class is designed to explore environmental issues as well as prepare students for the AP Environmental Science exam in a lab environment. Topics will include, but not limited to, the areas of ecosystems measurements, human populations, pollution, energy use, forestry issues, global health, agriculture (GMOs), and conservation biology. Students will gain lab skills that directly translate to job skills in today’s growing biotech and biomed industries. Ramifications and solutions to these problems are discussed.
