Environmental Science and Technology
How can citizens balance economic advancement and human well-being with environmental limitations in a dynamic world that continues to surpass historic boundaries? An increasing human population, a robust and progressive agriculture and the health of the Chesapeake Bay are a few of the characteristics that make Maryland the perfect place to study such questions. In a world of competing priorities, it is an increasingly important question for our citizenry, policy makers, and our students, in particular, to answer. Sound science and sustainable technologies are important requirements that will allow society to make the best decisions about managing the environment.
