Major in Earth and Space Sciences

Introduction 
The field of earth and space sciences is a broadly based multidisciplinary science combining geology, astronomy, atmospheric science and marine science. The major in earth and space sciences leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree and is a diversified program in the natural sciences and mathematics aimed at fostering a basic understanding of the earth and space sciences; it also includes concentrated study in any one of the natural sciences or mathematics or interdisciplinary studies in environmental geoscience.
