EEPS Majors and Minors

You can pursue one of two majors and a minor in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences.

The EEPS B.S. program provides a comprehensive introduction to the field, and is appropriate for students interested in pursuing careers or further study. You can choose one of three Areas of Specialization in Environmental Earth Science, Geoscience, or Planetary Science. Each area allows for flexibility to ensure that students gain the expertise that they seek.

The EEPS B.A. program is a more flexible program that still provides a comprehensive overview of the discipline and can be combined easily with other majors or professional career paths.

The EEPS Minor provides a solid introduction to the broad field of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences, allowing students to gain exposure to additional advanced topics, while pursuing their major in another field.
