Environmental Earth Sciences Curriculum

The Environmental Earth Sciences program will be available to students entering the CEEES department with sophomore status in the Fall of 2013 and future years.
The Environmental Earth Sciences program at Notre Dame was founded by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences to provide students with a quantitative preparation for professional careers or continued higher education in the disciplines of the earth and environmental science. This degree program blends the disciplines of fluid dynamics and hydrology, environmental chemistry and geochemistry framed within the larger context of Earth systems and focuses on the geology side of the environment and planetary systems. The program provides a foundation in the physical sciences, with emphasis on processes that occur near or at the surface of Earth, and the impact of human activity on such processes.

Notes
The new Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences curriculum merges environmental earth systems, hydrology and water flow and transport, and
chemistry into a unique inter-disciplinary curriculum focused on the environment at a range of scales. One option in the curriculum allows students to obtain an
accredited environmental engineering degree while the other option in the curriculum allows students to obtain a science degree that has more depth in earth sciences. Both degree options allow the students to take most of the courses that are in the parallel option.
