Environmental Geosciences is an interdisciplinary curriculum integrating physical, chemical and biological aspects of the environment and environmental systems. There remains a huge demand for scientists with quantitative, interdisciplinary training in environmental geosciences to address, mitigate, and manage a multitude of complex environmental problems facing society. The Interdisciplinary Program in Environmental Geosciences curriculum is specially designed to prepare students for leadership positions across a broad range of environmental fields and professions, and it currently has three specialization tracks: Ecology & the Environment, Water & the Environment, and Environmental Monitoring & Analysis. Environmental Geoscience graduates will have a solid foundation in biological, physical, and natural sciences, mathematics and statistics, and analytic and geospatial techniques, as well as the specialized training necessary for integrated analysis of environmental systems.
