Environmental science is an interdisciplinary area of study that combines the use of biological and physical sciences with other areas of study to better understand our interactions with the surrounding environment. College Board describes the AP Environmental Course as follows:
"The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental science is interdisciplinary; it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Yet there are several major unifying constructs, or themes, that cut across the many topics included in the study of environmental science."
