The Environmental, Earth and Ocean Sciences Department's undergraduate programs highlight geological, oceanic, geographic and environmental sciences. These programs use an interdisciplinary approach to address relationships between physical, natural and human environments. As environmental systems of all types become increasingly impacted by both natural and anthropogenic causes, interdisciplinary approaches become crucial for understanding the inherent complexities of these systems, and for designing solutions to address environmental degradation.
The Environmental, Earth and Ocean Sciences (EEOS) Department offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in the earth and geographic sciences as well as specialized undergraduate certificate programs in Geographic Information Technologies and Clean Energy. Course offerings reflect faculty expertise in the physical and cultural earth and geographic sciences, environmental research and resource management, and urban and regional geography.
