Departmental Vision

The Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) conducts research and offers instruction in the fields of Environmental Science, Geology, Oceanography, and Meteorology. The Department’s goals are to contribute to scientific knowledge by conducting world‐class research, and to be a source of information for the public and decision makers. The department offers undergraduate degrees in environmental sciences with a strong interdisciplinary core, and in geology and meteorology. Graduate degrees are offered in environmental science, geology, oceanography and meteorology at MS and PhD levels.

To offer the best education, our tenure track faculty personally teach and mentor students, minimizing the role of adjuncts. EOAS faculty are resolute in the belief that their science plays an essential role in the life of the University, state and nation and in the education of tomorrow’s leaders. They are committed to expanding and strengthening that role. EOAS faculty are also committed to offering students rigorous field‐camps, research experiences and cruises, and internships. These experiences are essential to a rounded education. EOAS retains excellence in its established areas of research with vigorous recruitment of highly qualified graduate students and faculty.

Undergraduate Programs


With five majors and many specialties to choose from, our degree programs include geology, environmental science and meteorology-delivering the very finest Earth Science education.

Graduate Programs


We offer nine Ph.D. and M.S. degree programs with unique offering of graduate programs that provide the highest quality of education and with an intensive research experience.


Research opportunities in Atmospheric Science, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Ocean Science, Biogeochemistry, Climate Science, Geophysical Dynamics and Natural Hazards are available at seven exciting research facilities.

Meet the faculty, researchers and staff that make this one of the best Earth Ocean and Atmospheric Science departments.
