CES – Environmental Analysis Focus

Students who choose the environment analysis focus area learn how to observe, quantify, measure, and report environmental problems. A strong foundation in the fundamentals of physical and organic chemistry will help students apply analytical skills and find solutions.

As environmental chemists or consultants, students often find work in the areas of hazardous waste, air and water quality management, and environmental remediation.

Some focus courses available include:

  • organic chemistry
  • quantitative analysis
  • biochemistry
  • microbiology
  • chemical hydrogeology
  • aquatic microbiology
  • physical chemistry
  • environmental geology
