The Department administers majors, honours and applied science programs that attract some 300 undergraduate students and 150 graduate students. Our modern facilities, demanding curriculum and award winning faculty place us among the most prominent departments of this type in North America and enable our programs to offer challenges to students at all levels.
The research focus of the EOAS Department extends from pure science studies of the earth`s deep interior, through near surface geological studies and environmental earth science, to a variety of studies of the oceans and atmosphere. Programs of study at the graduate and undergraduate level are equally diverse and are detailed elsewhere on this web site.
