Submitted on: 04-20-2011

Who were the original tree huggers? How long does it take for plastic to decompose? Who is more important, the panda bear or the honeybee? How do our food choices determine the future health of the planet? A new course offered at Aims Community College this summer will help answer these pressing questions about environmental issues that threaten our Earth. Environmental Ethics (PHI 218), offered by Aims Philosophy Professor Anne Machin, will provide a mix of history, theory and practical application with an emphasis on current environmental dilemmas. The class will be held from May 25 through July 20 on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and includes an online component. This class is just one of more than 600 classes Aims is offering this summer semester, which begins May 23. New and returning students can register now for summer and fall semester classes. Students can register online anytime at, or stop by the college, which is open 8-5 Tuesday through Friday, with extended hours on Mondays until 7 p.m. Additionally, prospective students can come to "Get Started" sessions, which are offered on the first and third Monday of each month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the College Center. These informational sessions will help answer your questions about programs, selecting a major, enrollment steps, financial aid, services and resources available at Aims.
