The physics department offers three programs in Earth and Space Science.
- The Bachelor of Arts with an Earth and Space Sciencemajor provides a broad base of study in the Earth and Space Sciences (astronomy, geology, meteorology and oceanography) for careers that require expertise in several of the Earth and Space Sciences. The course requirements are listed below (under "COURSE REQUIREMENTS"). For official information, go to the Earth and Space Science section in the ESU undergraduate catalog.
Note: Most students who complete this program also complete another major (e.g., English, Computer Science, or Environmental Studies).
- The Bachelor of Science with an Earth and Space Sciencemajor (Secondary Education) combines the content coursework in the Bachelor of Arts program (see above) with pedagogy coursework in education, leading to PA certification in earth and space science. For more information, see the "Earth & Space Science Secondary Education" link to your left.
- The Bachelor of Science with a Physics major (Earth and Space Science track) is designed for students who plan on pursuing graduate work in one of the Earth and Space Sciences (i.e., astronomy, geology, meteorology or oceanography). For more information, see the "Physics (B.S.)" link to your left.
