Dual Credit

Environmental Dual Credit

Semester Two high school credits and two college courses

Explore geographic mapping along with the ecological principles and the effects of environmental pressures on sustainability

Overview

Applied Geomatics – SVD4T (College Course: GEO100)

This course provides students with the knowledge and content related to geographic mapping. Tools and skills will be utilized to gather and relate measured data spatially. These tools will include the use of a Global Positioning System (GPS), mapping software, digital imagery and Geographical Information System (GIS) software. The learner will use a variety of spatial tools and software applications that form the basis of geomatic technology including the use of digital maps and standard forms of data input. Emphasis on analysis techniques and the presentation of finished products will be integral in the development of geomatic skills.

Ecology – CGB4T (College Course: ENV125)

Biotic and abiotic interactions are examined on individual, population, community and landscape scales. Lab and field work is conducted to introduce techniques used to sample, measure, and analyze ecological communities and establish baseline data.

Length:

Afternoon or morning release for one semester
