Welcome to Geosciences at VSU
What does it mean to study Environmental Geosciences?
Environmental Geosciences is a diverse field of study dealing with the Earth and its four spheres: lithosphere (the solid Earth), hydrosphere (the realm of water), atmosphere (the gaseous envelope surrounding Earth), and biosphere (the realm of living things). The Geosciences deal with the broad category of fields in the Earth Sciences.
For a look at ALL the various things geoscientists do, click HERE (this link opens a new window).
Students of geosciences at VSU focus on two broad areas:
- Geography--the Earth and the natural processes that modify the Earth's surface, Earth's inhabitants, their interactions with each other and with natural environment.
- Geology--the materials and structures that make up the Earth and the way they have changed throughout Earth's history.
More info will be published here soon about the Geosciences at VSU.
