The purpose of the undergraduate program in Earth and Planetary Sciences is to provide students with a broad background in the fundamentals of the Earth and planetary sciences as well as the quantitative, analytical, and communications skills necessary to conduct research and think critically about questions involving the Earth and other planets. The major provides excellent preparation for graduate school and careers in geological and environmental consulting, land use and planning, law, teaching, and other professions in which an understanding of the Earth and a background in science are important.
