About EOAS

As of April 22, 2010, Earth Day, the former departments of Geology, Oceanography, and Meteorology merged to form a new Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University. EOAS builds on the strengths of these former departments, and adds a new degree program in the field of Environmental Science.

The former departments remain as program areas under the larger umbrella of EOAS, continuing to offer degrees in their respective fields. As the program areas learn to work together more closely, we expect to improve and streamline our course offerings, leveraging our expanding areas of expertise in all our constituent fields.
