Earth and Environmental Science

Earth and Environmental Science (A/T)

Earth and Environmental Science is a multifaceted field of inquiry that focuses on interactions between the solid Earth, its water, its air and its living organisms, and on dynamic, interdependent relationships that have developed between these four components. Earth and environmental scientists consider how these interrelationships produce environmental change at a variety of timescales.

Students develop the skills and understanding across a range of related scientific fields in order to engage in public debate, solve problems and make evidence-based decisions about contemporary environmental issues. This course provides a foundation for further studies or employment in Earth and environmental science-related fields.
