Thus, courses in Anthropology, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, and Physics are included to explore the chemical, physical and biological processes operating at and near Earth’s surface. Earth Science students are well prepared for the workforce or graduate study because of the interdisciplinary breadth and depth of study, through hands-on training in the field, laboratory, and classroom, and with focus on contemporary issues that impact people and the environment.
The Earth Science program offers a variety of learning opportunities to prepare students to excel in and out of the classroom.
