ATHENS, W.Va. – The Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at Concord University has recently revised the major in Environmental Geosciences. The revised and more flexible major includes coursework, research, and field experience in traditional geology as well as the environmental and geospatial sciences.
The major provides students with opportunities to explore, analyze, and problem solve using a variety of tools and technologies in the program’s laboratory facilities, including the Electron Microprobe Lab, the Tephra Lab, the Environmental Geography Lab, and the R.T. Hill Spatial Analysis Lab. Through these hands-on experiences, students gain professional skills they can put to use in satisfying careers addressing society’s most pressing environmental, energy, and natural resource issues.
As stated in the Concord University Academic Catalog, “This degree program is designed to prepare students for scientific careers or graduate study in geology and/or environmental science. The curriculum includes a comprehensive geology core that qualifies graduates to apply for licensure as a professional environmental geologist through ASBOG (Association of State Boards of Geology). Students will acquire field, laboratory, and computer skills necessary for long-term employment in the environmental, engineering, geospatial, energy, and geologic workforce.”
