EARTH AND
ATMOSPHERIC
SCIENCES

In Geology and Geophysics, the BS programs prepare
students for professional careers in industry and
government agencies or provide an excellent foundation
for entrance to graduate school. Students with these
degrees have also been employed in fields associated
with the environmental sciences. The BA program is
well suited for students who wish to pursue geosciencerelated careers in fields such as law, education,
journalism, or urban planning.

In Meteorology, the BS program emphasizes the
characteristics, structure and dynamics of the
atmosphere, global change, and an emphasis on
mathematical and numerical techniques used in weather
forecasting and mesoscale processes. The BA program
offers flexibility so that careers in fields such as
Broadcasting and Environmental Science can be sought.

Environmental Studies (BA)
Foundation Courses in Science and Math:
(minimum 38 credits)
Physical Sciences: (minimum 11 credits)

The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programs
in Environmental Science, Environmental Studies,
Geology, Geophysics and Meteorology. Most current
information on these degree programs can be found on
the Department’s web page (www.slu.edu/x35834.xml).
In the Environmental Science BS and BA programs,
students gain knowledge and appreciation of the Earth’s
environment through a sequence of lower-division
courses. Once this scientific foundation has been
established, students pursue a more specialized
sequence of upper-division courses in atmospheric
science, biology, chemistry, and/or geosciences. A
similar breadth-depth approach is followed in the
Environmental Studies BA program. In the Studies
program, a student can focus their upper-division
studies in 1) Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, 2)
Economics, Politics, and Public Policy, 3) Society and
the Environment Through Space and Time, 4)
Advocacy and Discourse, or 5) Natural Sciences. This
“breadth-depth” approach in the Science and Studies
programs prepare students for the wide range of
challenges they will face as they advance to graduate
