Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Programs offered by the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department provide students with a strong background in the traditional fields of Applied Geology, Environmental Science, Geography, Geospatial Sciences, and Meteorology.
We are currently transitioning into our new site, please check out our new website:
The department educates the students of MSU Denver in a way that promotes science literacy and inspires lifelong learning and appreciation of the Earth system. Students who graduate with a major in Applied Geology, Environmental Science, Geography, Geospatial Sciences and Meteorology are highly skilled and knowledgeable in their field. They gain employment in the field after graduation due to the quality and diversity of their skills, or go on to successfully continue their educational journey at a graduate school. As learning facilitators, the faculty are teachers who promote active learning in the classroom, advise students towards their career goals, and participate in scholarly activities that keep them abreast of the most recent scholarship in their field.
