The Earth and Planetary Science, B.S. is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics Departments.

Mission of the Program

The Earth and Planetary Sciences major is meant to serve students with a strong interest in math, physics, chemistry and computational methods applied to planetary sciences, who wish to pursue technical careers (e.g. traditional/alternative energy industries) or graduate studies at research universities with strong Earth and Planetary Science programs.  The major would be useful to those wishing to pursue advanced degrees in areas such as planetology and space exploration, planetary astrophysics, geology/geophysics, Earth’s evolution, climate modeling or meteorology.
