About This Program

The Environmental Geology minor prepares students to integrate concepts and knowledge of environmental geology and to communicate these issues to a variety of audiences, including policymakers and the public. Scientific knowledge about environmental geology processes is used to inform different areas of formal study such as anthropology, architecture, geography, political science, environmental law, environmental studies and recreation and park management.

Students in the minor gain broad knowledge of geology and the environmental impacts of anthropogenic-induced change on the earth in the immediate short-term and over longer periods. Competencies focus on human-water-rock interactions at Earth's surface (the critical zone).
