Activities The Geosciences Department offers coursework in most of the major fields within the geosciences leading to undergraduate degrees in environmental science, environmental studies, geography and geology. The College of Arts & Sciences interdisciplinary program in Urban Studies is also housed in the department.
Our Master of Science Degree in Environmental and Urban Geosciences reflects a distinct departmental focus on application of the geosciences to human activities. This unique program prepares students, depending on their area of concentration, for advanced study of different facets of the environment including: environmental issues and geospatial methods, natural hazards, environmental remediation, waste management, air and water pollution, resource evaluation and management, geoarcheology, historical geography and urban land use planning. The department also participates in a visionary interdisciplinary doctoral degree program where the Geosciences department works with faculty from Engineering, Physics, History, Computer Sciences, Economics, and other disciplines to develop focused degree programs tailored to the needs of the individual student.
