Student Learning Outcomes
1. Think critically about problems in environmental sciences.
2. Have experiences with environmental/geological illustrations and maps and know how to perform environmental field investigations.
3. Students should have skills enabling them to interpret scientific data in our sciences.
4. Students should have the option to enter graduate or professional school in environmental and geological sciences, policy, law or other related fields.
5. Students should be qualified to obtain a job or internship in our sciences, if desired.
6. Use a variety of instruments commonly used to collect data in our sciences.
7. Students should be familiar with basic knowledge of subsurface and surface geologic processes that form rocks and shape the landscape.
8. Environmental sustainability and stewardship are crucial concepts in environmental science. Consequently, students should understand human actions that advance environmental stability as well as those actions that cause environmental degradation. Human interaction with earth systems is integral to our studies.
