Environmental Earth Sciences Major
The Environmental Earth Sciences major combines the disciplines of fluid dynamics, hydrology, environmental chemistry, and geochemistry in the context of Earth systems. The program focuses on the geology side of the environment and planetary systems and provides a foundation in the physical sciences, while also covering the impact of human activity on Earth processes. Specific courses cover topics such as geomorphology, Earth materials and petrology, mineralogy, environmental microbiology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy. The major is housed in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences.
