Environmental Geosciences (EGS) is an interdisciplinary curriculum integrating physical, chemical and biological aspects of the environment and environmental systems. There is a large (and increasing) demand for scientists with quantitative, interdisciplinary training in environmental sciences to address, mitigate, and manage many complex environmental problems facing society. We work very closely with the Environmental Studies Program to provide a wide selection of courses as well as high-quality internships and field experiences.
Later on in your academic career, you will find that our undergraduate program feeds seamlessly into our graduate degrees (M.S. and Ph.D.) in Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior. As part of the environmental Geosciences program, you are part of a small, tight–knit group that has immediate access to advisors, research opportunities, and many environmental clubs and organizations.
