Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences


Earth and Environmental Sciences are interdisciplinary fields that focus the planet's lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere and their interactions.  Studies embrace the geological, geographical and environmental disciplines that investigate the structure, history and resources of the earth, and the physical and human-related impacts that alter its processes and landscapes.


The Department comprises of three disciplines:

  • Environmental Science
  • Geography
  • Geology
