About the Program

The earth/space science education program provides a broad earth science core; a strong background in math, chemistry, and physics; and courses in education covering student development, integration of content and teaching methods, use of technology, fostering community, and assessing outcomes. The Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) Department has a low faculty-to-student ratio, which allows students to have a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. All undergraduates are encouraged to take part in research.
