Program Overview

Environmental Geosciences is an interdisciplinary curriculum integrating physical, chemical and biological aspects of the environment and environmental systems. There remains a huge demand for scientists with quantitative, interdisciplinary training in environmental sciences to address, mitigate, and manage a multitude of complex environmental problems facing society. The Interdisciplinary Program in Environmental Geosciences curriculum is specially designed to prepare students for leadership positions across a broad range of environmental fields and professions, and it currently has three specialization tracks: Ecology & the Environment, Water & the Environment, and Environmental Monitoring & Analysis. Environmental Geoscience graduates will have a solid foundation in biological, physical, and natural sciences, mathematics and statistics, and analytic and geospatial techniques, as well as the specialized training necessary for integrated analysis of environmental systems.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this program, students will take classes from and interact with faculty from a number of departments on campus. A list of the faculty that are participating instructors of the courses offered for the degree can be found at http://www.envsci.buffalo.edu/.
