The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences offers three distinct undergraduate degrees within and between the two core programs of Atmospheric Science and Environmental Science: a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Atmospheric Science; a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Environmental Science; and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. All three degrees are recognized as particularly challenging and attract students of high caliber who are interested in studying the fundamental processes operating on-and-within the Earth and its atmosphere.
