Environmental Chemistry Bachelor of ScienceApply
Environmental chemistry stresses applications of fundamental chemical principles to describe and predict behavior of chemicals in the environment. After obtaining a strong foundation in analytical, physical and organic chemistry, students pursue advanced study in air and water chemistry:
A range of specialty courses are taught by our faculty and are offered at regular intervals: Urban Health, Oceanography, Aquatic Organic Chemistry, Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry, Advanced Environmental Analysis. A wide variety of courses in ecology, engineering, geology, and environmental policy are also available.
This program provides particularly good training for students aiming for professional degrees or careers in forensics or any aspect of environmental science.
- FCH 510 Environmental Chemistry I - Aquatic Chemistry
- FCH 511 Environmental Chemistry II - Atmospheric Chemistry
- FCH 515 Methods of Environmental Chemical Analysis
Professional Elective provide students exposure to enviormental topics in health, engineering, biology and sustainability. The senior year culminates in a senior research project undertaken under the supervision of one of the chemistry faculty. This give students the opportunity to experience research ranging from laboratory work to field-intensive studies.
Research encompasses fieldwork, laboratory studies, and modeling, and focuses on the atmosphere as well as marine and freshwater systems. Studies are carried out on scales ranging from local to regional to global. Topics include behavior of nutrients in water, food webs, toxic algal blooms, reactive and persistent organic pollutants in air and water, mercury chemistry, and global climate change.
