Earth & Environmental Science


  • The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) balances classroom and field experience; students regularly paddle, snorkel and head underground to expand on knowledge gained from textbooks.
  • EES majors are encouraged to conduct original, faculty-directed research and often present their findings at conferences sponsored by organizations such as the Geological Society of America.
  • Whether the goal is analyzing a natural disaster or understanding climate change, the curriculum is dynamic, evolving to reflect changing environmental conditions and the latest research.
  • In 2010, the department moved into a cutting-edge, environmentally friendly facility that features 19 labs and a rooftop greenhouse.
