About

Students and faculty of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences study the Earth’s interior, surface, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere in real and deep time using modern observational, analytical, and computational methods.  Our curriculum provides students with hands-on experience studying earth materials, often in a small classroom, laboratory, and field settings. We provide the academic foundation for graduate education, and a variety of employment opportunities including resource and environmental corporations, educational organizations, and government agencies.
