Geochemistry MinorOffered by: Department of Earth Sciences Geochemistry is a state-of-the-art science that studies the abundance of elements and their movement through the Earth’s crust, atmosphere, oceans, lakes, and streams.
Why choose a minor in geochemistry?
This minor is ideal for Geology and Environmental Science students who have an interest in geochemistry, chemistry and chemical biology students who would like practical application of the chemical skills they have learned as part of their major, students in Forensic & Investigative Sciences who want to learn geochemical approaches, and Biology students who want to develop a broader environmental context for their research. Knowledge of the chemical and biological reactions that mobilize and transform elements within the environment is fundamental to a broad range of disciplines including geology, climate science, environmental science, microbiology, ecology, forensics and chemistry.
“I hope to use my knowledge of science to help solve some of the environmental issues that we are currently facing and will continue to fight against in the future.”Elliot Boyle Environmental Science, Undergraduate
