Undergraduate Programs

The department offers three undergraduate majors: Geology, Geography, and Earth Systems. Our goal is to provide rigorous training in the evolving fields of geology and geography, while providing a third (and broader) option for students who want to focus on integrating disciplines and processes within the context of Earth system science. In addition, we have recently joined the multi-departmental Environmental Science program in CNS and provide a leadership role in teaching and mentoring students in this multidisciplinary major.
