Earth Sciences Concentrations

The Earth Sciences BS offers alternative pathways through the requirements that allow students to specialize in four different concentrations:

  • Environmental Geology includes an interdisciplinary study of the environment with a geological emphasis.
  • Ocean Sciences offers students a course of study that includes physical and biological oceanography, biogeochemistry, and geophysical fluid dynamics.
  • Planetary Sciences takes a comprehensive look at planetary systems, from the composition of the planets themselves and their satellites, to the physics that govern their motion.
  • Science Education offers students a broad science background appropriate for teaching K-12.
