Philosophy (Ph.D) degree in Environmental Dynamics.
Environmental Dynamics Program focuses on the study of complex human
and environmental interactions
emphasizing original doctoral research at the interface between physical,
biological, and sociocutural disciplines.
stresses interdisciplinary regional analyses of geophysical, biological,
climatic, and sociocultural interactions and changes, including natural
and social impacts of such dimensions as global climate change, human
demography, pollution, landscape evolution and degradation, natural
hazards, water resources, and watershed science.
often requires creative formulation of problem solving between established
scientific disciplines. Attention is given to both theoretical and applied
program stresses the application of appropriate methodologies such as
GIS, GPS, remote sensing, computer modeling, and cartography to environmental
research approach integrates the power, efficiency, and economy of advanced
computer-based technologies into the study of human-environmental interactions
within recent Earth history.
ENDY program allows students to focus on a program leading to diverse
careers in academia, international organizations, federal and state
