Earth and Environmental Sciences

The expanding field of earth and environmental sciences demands more knowledgeable and better-prepared professionals. That's why you come to Brooklyn College.

Our Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences offers an abundance of graduate opportunities related to the solid earth and its atmosphere and hydrosphere. Through course work, seminars and labs, you can study such areas as meteorology, earth science, the geology of U.S. national parks, the history of life on earth through the examination of fossils and the evolution of life forms, and many more. Our excellent research labs support your studies in petrophysics, analytical geochemistry, paleontology and GIS-supported geology. Specific resources include reaction cell ICP-MS, XRD, high-resolution TEM, wet labs and research petrographic microscopes. Off-campus electron microprobe and variable pressure SEM facilities are available for in-depth research. Combined, our facilities and programs take your advanced study of earth and environmental sciences to a markedly higher level in this growing field.
