18 Oct What are the types of environmental studies?
Environmental science programs generally consist of classes in ecology, hydrology, geology and atmospheric science, plus core classes in math, chemistry, biology, physics and social sciences. You might also take courses in geographic information systems (GIS), land use planning, data analysis and global positioning systems (GPS).
Some programs offer fieldwork and the chance to participate in research projects. If you focus on a sub-field of environmental science, such as environmental chemistry or environmental physics, you’ll take most of your classes in that area and then a sequence of courses that incorporate environmental assessment, policy or relevant fieldwork.
In Environmental physics, the environmental science explores how the principles of physics are exhibited in and may influence environmental processes and problems.
People who work in environmental health explore the way in which factors in the environment, whether natural or man-made, affect the health of living things.
