Welcome to the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) prepares students to pursue a broad range of careers in academia, industry, government and teaching, by providing them with educational training and the indoor and outdoor opportunities to obtain a solid foundation in the Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Earth and Environmental Sciences are interdisciplinary, integrating principles of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics, as well as quantitative and critical thinking skills, to address geological and environmental issues related to the solid earth, the oceans, and the atmosphere. To this end, the Department's programs and courses are designed to encompass a broad spectrum of basic scientific disciplines.
