Major Highlight - Earth Sciences

Earth Sciences Students Earth Sciences, the scientific study of the Earth, include research about processes occurring on and in the Earth. Earth scientists investigate mountain building, earthquakes, paleobiology, geochemistry, petrology, mineralogy, hydrogeology, oceanography, sedimentology, fossil fuels, and climatology, and study processes going on today and throughout deep time. Majors take courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, statistics, and biology in addition to their Earth science classes. Research is a hallmark of the pursuit of Earth Sciences at Ohio State, where all students pursuing the BS degree conduct research and write a senior thesis. Students can also earn a BA in Earth Sciences and the flexibility of the BA curriculum allows room for students to pursue prerequisite classes for the M.Ed. and pre-health curricula. Students graduating with an Earth Sciences major pursue graduate study or go directly into careers in areas including the energy industry, environmental consulting, non-profit and government agencies.  Learn more - Contact an advisor.
