Environmental Geology students develop expertise in surface and shallow subsurface processes that shape the Earth and provide critical soil and water resources and services for human and natural use. Graduates will be prepared for careers that address environmental implications of geological process and human activities on Earth. The curriculum emphasizes courses spanning the fundamentals of geology, surface, and shallow subsurface processes, field-based research methodologies, and environmental aspects of geology. The concentration empowers students to pursue positions with public, private, and nonprofit organizations that address environmental/natural resource management issues, regulatory agency compliance, hazard identification and mitigation, and fundamental scientific investigations that can inform natural resource policy and decision making that promise sound stewardship of Earth resources. The curriculum also provides a strong foundation for those planning to continue on to graduate studies in geosciences or other environmental disciplines.
