Concentration Requirements

We encourage you to learn more about the options for EPS undergraduate study by exploring the resources below. If you have additional questions, please contact our Undergraduate office.

EPS Concentration

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with a faculty advisor during freshman year to plan appropriate choices of coursework in math, chemistry, and physics. All essential information regarding basic and joint concentration requirements can be found in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Handbook. For a summary of concentration requirements, please see: EPS Curricular Advising Cheat Sheet, Breadth Categories for EPS Classes, and Suggestions for EPS Thematic Plans of Study. Students are encouraged to track their course requirements using the Plan of Study Worksheet or Joint Concentrators Plan of Study Worksheet

EPS Secondary Field

The EPS secondary field is intended to provide a strong foundation in one or more subfields of Earth science (geophysics, geochemistry, climate science, atmospheric chemistry, geology, earth history, paleontology, planetary science) to students who have sufficient preparation in physics, chemistry, and mathematics. For details on requirements, view the Undergraduate Handbook: Secondary Field Requirements.
