Soil, Water, and Land Resources
Soil forms an essential part of the environment, affecting or controlling most living things. Soil science draws from geology, geography and a variety of other natural and life sciences, focuses land use management at the watershed scale and provides an integrated knowledge of soil and water dynamics to control problems like non-point source pollution, wetland delineation, and land classification. At the advanced level, soil and water sciences focus on sub-disciplines in soil chemistry, soil physics, soil genesis, soil fertility, and soil biology; all with an emphasis on the soil-water interface. Many students who take ENST200 (Intro to Soils) as a requirement end up joining our nationally-ranked Soil Judging Team!
This concentration is sponsored by the Environmental Science and Technology Department within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
