Air Quality Minor
The Air Quality minor focuses on the methods, policies and effects of air quality on people’s health and welfare. The various regulations and public policy related to air quality are highlighted, along with the methods of measuring the gas and particulate matter in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Students will use current software used to predict the distribution of contaminants and concentrations of air pollution. Through coursework, students will use equipment for sampling the atmosphere, and will have access to the environmental science laboratories for their chemical analysis.
