Environmental Chemistry is the study of the presence and movement of chemicals in the air, soil, and water. Environmental chemists study how these chemicals, usually contaminants, affect the health of people, wildlife, and ecosystems. This concentration prepares students for future studies in the field or for positions in state or federal agencies as well as private enterprise. This degree is perfectly aligned with a Chemistry degree and students can easily earn a dual degree in Environmental Science and Chemistry for the same number of hours.
