Geomorphology, Climate, and Soils
Earth Science, as a subfield of geography, emphasizes the study of environmental processes at regional and global scales. Geomorphology and biogeography are the most important components of the Earth Science track. Its goal is to provide a sound background in aspects of the origin, development, and evolution of the earth's physical environment and landscape.
Students selecting the earth science track take courses such as:
GRG 333K: Climate Change
GRG 334C: Environmental Hazards
GRG 334K: Soils
GRG 335N: Landscape Ecology
GRG 338C: Fluvial Geomorphology
GRG 339: Process Geomorphology
GRG 356: Water Resources: Latin America/Caribbean
GRG 366C: Comparative Ecosystems
The honors sequence (679HA/HB) can be used to meet part of this track requirement.
Note: In addition to the above, all geography majors must also complete the core requirements in Human Geography, Physical Geography, and Techniques.
