124 Hours Bachelor of Science - Enviromental Geoscience

Environmental geoscience has been developed to meet the increased demand for this sector of employment. This area accounts for 30% of all geoscientists who are currently employed in the U.S. and is expected to expand by 21-35% by 2010. The area of emphasis in environmental geoscience utilizes an interdisciplinary curriculum which will prepare graduates for careers involving the application of geologic concepts to the solution of environmental problems. These problems include 1) the protection of human health and natural ecosystems from environmental degradation, and 2) the protection of human health and the environment from geohazards such as floods, earthquakes, and landslides through land-use planning.
