BIO 4220 - Urban Biomes and Waste Fieldwork


Prerequisite(s): BIO 3210 ; BIO 3220 ; BIO 3230 ; BIO 3240 ; HUM 3200 . Co-requisite(s): BIO 4210 .
Identifying relevant problems in Fort Wayne’s urban environments, this field course forces students past barriers to “making a difference” and leads them to service. As they focus on blights to our health and well-being, students will function in the neighborhood by carrying out a major improvement project based on ecological principles. Collaborative problem solving and group service to the greater Fort Wayne community predominates throughout the semester, mimicking team-based science in wider molecular disciplines. These assignments develop effective and respectful communication skills. Uncertain outcomes in scientific research is a hallmark in this course, providing students with the insight to recognize and the courage to handle ambiguity in environmental settings. Credit(s): 1
