The Earth and Space Science program relates to numerous scientific departments and areas of study, but the courses are intended for non-science majors.

Courses introduce students to a scientific appreciation of the natural world, and strengthen critical thinking, problem solving, and quantitative skills that are part of the liberal arts curriculum. Elective courses related to the physics of the Earth and the universe, including physical and historical geology, planetary and stellar astronomy, and meteorology are part of this program.
