We offer two undergraduate majors. In 2018, one of these - the Science of Earth Systems - will be renamed and will become the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) major matching our department name. While we are in transition, please continue to access major information using Science of Earth Systems links where they still appear.
The Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) major integrates geological, atmospheric, oceanic, and biogeochemical knowledge and is available to students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Engineering.
The Atmospheric Sciences major, available to students in the College of Agriculture adn Life Sciences, emphasizes the scientific study of the behavior of weather and climate, and applications to the important practical problems of weather forecasting and climate prediction.
