EVSC 2050: Introduction to Oceanography
Credits: 3
Analyzes the principles that govern the world's oceans and their integration into an understanding of the major marine environments. Topics include marine pollution, global climate, and marine policy.
EVSC 3860: Introduction to Geochemistry
Credits: 4
Studies the principles that govern the distribution and abundance of the elements in the Earth's lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere. Prerequisite: EVSC 2800 encouraged but not required.
EVSC 4002: Undergraduate Seminar
Credits: 1
A weekly, one-hour seminar series for majors, other interested undergraduates, and the University community dealing with environmental processes, research, issues, careers, and graduate study.
EVSC 4050: Topics in Oceanography
Credits: 3
Introduces oceanography together with a survey of marine resources and the scientific bases for their management. Prerequisite: One year college-level science.
EVSC 4559: New Course in Environmental Science
Credits: 1–4
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject area of environmental science.
EVSC 4993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–6
Specialized topics in ecology, atmosphere, hydrology, environmental geology, or environmental systems not normally covered in formal classes under the direction of the faculty. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
EVSC 4995: Supervised Research
Credits: 1–6
Original research usually involving a field or laboratory problem in the environmental sciences under the direction of one or more faculty members. The results may form the basis of an undergraduate thesis which is required to partially fulfill the Distinguished Majors Program in environmental sciences. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
EVSC 5050: Advanced Oceanography
Credits: 3
The principles of oceanography with views on real world applications, especially to the teaching of this class at the high school as well. Prerequisite: At least one year of college-level chemisty or physics or instructor permission..
EVGE 5850: Geochemistry
Credits: 4
Studies the principles that govern the distribution and abundance of the elements in the earth's lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere. Prerequisite: College chemistry and calculus; intorductory earth science or geology recommended.
EVGE 5860: Isotope Geochemistry
Credits: 4
Investigates natural phenomena by means of stable and unstable isotopes and changes in their abundance, including isotope fractionation. Includes age dating, paleotemperature determination, and isotope tracers in natural systems.
EVGE 7999: Independent Study-Geosciences
Credits: 1–6
Individual or group study in developing or special areas of geosciences and interrelated areas, emphasizing earth-surface processes.
