Understanding the Earth processes is of utmost importance in the modern world. We offer curricula in environmental sciences, environmental earth sciences, earth engineering and environmental sustainability and prepare our students for successful and rewarding careers or graduate studies.
Our faculty have strengths in water, soil and air pollution and cutting edge techniques to study them. Research and education emphasizes practical applications, especially in the field. The program uniquely includes a field research station to facilitate research and education.
How You Will Learn
The department offers rigorous courses that are comparable to the best in the country. Student research is an integral part of the learning experience and provides opportunities for enhanced understanding. Technical abilities and effective communication are emphasized in preparation for successful careers and graduate studies. Small classes provide individual attention to students for enhanced learning. Our students are considered by both industry leaders and graduate programs to be well prepared for their chosen paths.
From the oceans to the atmosphere, Earth's surface and beyond, our faculty and students research all areas of Earth and Environmental Sciences. See our individual research areas for further information.
