A degree in environmental science and geology

In environmental science and geology, we aim to understand the earth, its complex ecosystems and the environmental issues it faces. This might mean looking at rocks, atmosphere, landscapes, plants and animals to discover more about patterns and processes to learn how they affect modern environmental and ecological systems. As students and scholars, our goal is to solve modern environmental problems and learn more about the interactions of organisms, including humans, on environmental systems.
