Department of Earth, Environmental, and Atmospheric Sciences


The Department of Earth, Environmental, and Atmospheric Sciences (formerly Geography and Geology) (GEO)  offers three undergraduate programs, one undergraduate certificate and one graduate program, which include a B.S in Environmental, Sustainability, and Geographic Studies, a B.S. in Geological Sciences with two concentrations (Geology and Environmental Earth Science), a B.S. in Meteorology, an undergraduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and an M.S. in Geoscience.  These programs are designed to meet the career goals of students in a wide variety of geoscience areas such as atmospheric science, environment/sustainability, cultural/physical geography, geology, environmental earth science, and GIS-geospatial science. We aim to develop exceptional undergraduates and graduates in our programs and in colonnade courses, to engage students in critical thinking and problem-solving education, and relevant training in the classroom, laboratory, and field settings. We aim to enhance the reputation of the Department and its constituencies through meaningful research, community engagement, public service, and workforce development.
