Earth Sciences

From structure to atmosphere, Earth Sciences pulls together many Sciences to help elevate your comprehension of what affects and impacts the Earth. Through the lens of science and research, you will explore Earth's physical history, including volcanoes and natural disasters, as well as different landscapes and their characteristics. You will learn that geography is more than just location. Those who study geography investigate how the physical features of the land influences the people who live there, and how people have an impact on the landscape around them.
