Energy Science Track

Sustainable Energy Science Track

Students majoring in Environmental Earth Science (BS)  acquire an understanding of the geologic framework of the earth and energy science issues. Students take a common set of core classes  and choose one of three tracks: Environmental Earth Science, General Earth Science, Sustainable Energy Science.

Energy  Science Track: The energy science track prepares students to work in the energy field or  pursue graduate studies in energy science or policy. The first students in this  new track graduated in May 2010. Current graduates are pursuing graduate  degrees or are working for energy consulting firms, utilities, and  state agencies. In addition to core geoscience classes, this track includes  energy science courses that examine conventional and renewable energy sources  and applications.
