Environmental Science Concentration

The Environmental Earth Science (EES) major provides a broad-based education in the earth sciences while remaining firmly grounded in geology. The curriculum stresses the materials, processes, and features of the earth; and the ways in which earth scientists address environmental problems. The student selects one track to follow. Courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computing are integrated into the major to provide the diverse background necessary for analyzing environmental problems.

The Environmental Science track addresses areas such as geologic hazards and groundwater contamination. In addition to formal coursework, independent studies and internships offer students the opportunity to integrate field, laboratory, technical writing, and/or computer skills in the investigation of environmental problems.
