The Earth Science Program provides students with a strong background in geology, astronomy, and oceanography and enables them to study and understand processes that have shaped the earth and the solar system over the last 4.6 billion years.
Students will learn about both the internal and surface processes acting on the earth, including the forces behind plate tectonics and its surface manifestations, earthquakes and volcanoes. The Earth Science student will take advantage of new and developing technologies such as the use of global positioning systems and geographic information systems in the mapping of geologic, soil, water and other environmental features.
