Fundamentals of Soil Science
This course is designed to provide an overview of the fundamental concepts in soil science: Genesis, Classification and Morphology, Physics, Chemistry, Fertility, Biology, and Land Use.
Community Engaged Scholarship & Learning
Students develop tools and management for urban gardens tackling local food security issues while promoting soil conservation through sustainable agronomic practices such as drip irrigation and composting in partnership with La Union del Pueblo Entero (LUPE).
This course covers types of soil organisms, biogeochemical functions, and environmental processes and applications involving soil microorganisms. Through inquiry-based experiments, students master state-of-the-art laboratory techniques while applying experimental design concepts.
