Environmental Earth Science Major
Environmental Earth Science (EES) students receive a foundation in environmental geoscience that draws upon classroom, online, laboratory and field-based experiences. Students develop an understanding of the natural world, its materials, processes and geologic records of environmental change, and associated energy and sustainability issues. EES majors prepare for careers or graduate studies in geoscience and energy studies.
Student pick from three concentrations in Environmental Earth Science, General Earth Science or Sustainable Energy Science.
Coursework and other educational experiences help students: identify and analyze applied problems use scientific approaches to formulate and test hypotheses collect, analyze and interpret data apply quantitative and computer-based techniques present findings in written and oral formats demonstrate the relevance of geosciences to society
