We have a wide-ranging department with degrees ranging from undergraduate minors through the PhD.

We take pride in quality of teaching as well as excellence in research. As a component of the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, we emphasize hands-on field work, with research locations from the Arctic to Guatemala, as well as in the forests, streams, beaches, and human landscapes of the mid-Atlantic. Please look over our site and feel free to contact the Department for further information.
