We break the rules of mainstream university structure. Our earth and atmospheric sciences major is offered by three of Cornell's undergraduate colleges. Cornell is the only Ivy League university that offers an undergraduate program in atmospheric science.
The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is a global leader in research directed toward understanding the fundamental processes that have shaped our planet, and is committed to providing Cornell students with the earth literacy needed to serve as informed citizens and wise stewards of the Earth.
We offer undergraduate majors in atmospheric sciences and earth and atmospheric sciences. In addition, we offer undergraduate minors in atmospheric sciences, earth and atmospheric sciences, and climate change.
