Field Trip to a mine

Environmental scientists work toward defining and solving environmental problems caused by the actions of human beings. Students minoring in Environmental Science are concerned with both the technological problems and social aspects of environmental issues. Their interdisciplinary course work includes the study of scientific principles used in environmental problem solving, and the study of the impact of economics, politics and other social systems on environmental policies and practices. Their primary ethical concern is human stewardship of the earth.
