Can be taken as: Domain

Earth sciences and economics are essential for our understanding of the many mechanisms, both physical and social, that affect Earth's environment. This domain includes the fundamentals of each discipline. Students learn of minerals, rocks, soils, and waters and how these materials interact with each other and with the atmosphere. Fundamental economic theory and the economic effects of public policy toward resource industries, methods of waste disposal, and the potential effects of global warming on the global economy are also explored.

Note: This Domain is open only to students in the BSc Major Program in Environment.
