I think it's fantastic that you're eager to delve into Environmental Studies! My own experience taking this course in high school was incredibly rewarding. Not only did it deepen my understanding of ecological systems and sustainability issues, but it also armed me with a knowledge base that propelled me into college-level environmental studies with confidence. I found the course fascinating, and it was hands-down one of my favorites – the hands-on activities really brought the subject matter to life. If you're thinking about a future in environmental science, policy, or a related field, this class can definitely offer a glimpse into what academic and potentially professional focus you might want to explore. So yes, for me, it played a significant role in choosing my major and it was an enjoyable ride all the way through!
