The Geoscience / Geography Department will provide comprehensive, interdisciplinary Earth and Environmental Science education with an emphasis upon urban issues by utilizing our urban setting for teaching, service, and community-based research. We will foster disciplinary excellence in science educators and environmental geoscientists and will emphasize proficiency in critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, technology, and professional communication in all NJCU students.
The core mission of the Geoscience/Geography Program is to foster individual growth in all of our students by providing a high-quality learning environment in the Earth, Geographic and Environmental Sciences that is rigorous, challenging and professional while being engaging, supportive and nurturing. We believe such growth will help our general studies students to become scientifically responsible citizens and will prepare our major students for graduate school and/or for careers in the earth sciences, environmental sciences and science education.
Our educational efforts are focused on personal growth in the areas of
