The Earth and Environmental Science faculty and students are involved in many areas of research, especially those involving urban environments. Faculty and students make significant contributions to the community by bringing scientific methods and high technology to bear upon problems of local concern such as aging infrastructure, urban redevelopment and sprawl, and environmental contamination. Our mission is to train and equip our students with the skills and knowledge needed for success as science teachers, technical professionals, and managers. The Department also hosts the Earth and Environmental Science Club and encourages its majors to participate in field studies in the Caribbean, the western U.S., and other areas.
The Earth and Environmental Science Department offers more than one degree track that focus on three subject areas: Earth Science, Environmental Science, and Geology.
