Welcome to Earth & Climate Sciences!

We are excited to have you join us in our exploration of the Earth's systems - through hands-on fieldwork, laboratory research, and data analysis. Because the ECS major is run by faculty in the Nicholas School of the Environment, you will also have access to events, internships and career opportunities of the larger Nicholas School Community. You will also receive weekly email updates on upcoming events and opportunities that may be of interest to you.

The co-directors of ECS undergraduate programs are Professors Alexander Glass and Emily Klein. At our first meeting, we will explore your interests and guide you through course selection, discuss research opportunities, and help you outline your individualized path through your undergraduate career. Each semester, prior to registration, we will meet to discuss course selection and review your progress to ensure that you are on track for completing the major. Again, welcome to Earth & Climate Sciences! Feel free to contact us to arrange our first meeting.
