Curriculum

 

Environmental Earth Sciences 

The Environmental Earth Sciences program blends the disciplines of fluid dynamics, 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 the Earth, and the impact of human activity on such processes.

 

Course Topics

  • Planet Earth
  • Global change
  • Geochemistry
  • Environmental aquatic chemistry
  • Mineralogy
  • Environmental Microbiology
