Gain a fundamental understanding of oceanographic, atmospheric and terrestrial sciences

 

Trekking through forests. Taking water samples at the beach. Analyzing the chemical content of samples. These activities illustrate the range of scientific exploration conducted by undergraduate students in Earth System Science (B.S.). ESS classes provide fundamental knowledge of oceanography, meteorology, geology, hydrology and environmental science. Through lab and field activities, students gain an understanding of how individual aspects of the environment interact, including the influence of humans. Students have the opportunity to conduct independent research alongside expert faculty, graduate students, and researchers.
