Earth sciences cover a broad range of topics, including evolution, earth systems, ecosystems, and animal and plant biology. Earth sciences students learn about the following concepts in-depth: the chemical and physical evolution of Earth, factors that cause volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, evolution, earth-surface processes, ocean and atmospheric development, and human impact on the physical environment. Earth science students must develop advanced quantitative skills, so juniors and seniors are required to complete upper-level classes in math, physics, and chemistry.
