At their June 2013 meeting, the Board of Regents approved a name change for the Department of Geoscience in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Effective immediately, this unit will be known as the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences.
The programs of study offered by the department have not changed. Courses will continue to be offered under the current subject acronym GEOS through Winter 2013. Effective Spring 2014, the subject acronym for courses will be EES.
