The Department of Environmental, Earth and Geospatial Sciences (DEEGS) offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental and Geographic Sciences and a Master of Science degree in Earth Science. DEEGS provides curricula through which students develop the analytical and methodological skills necessary to understand relationships between the physical, chemical and biological systems of Earth and the impact of humans on the environment. The department provides continuous programs of research training for undergraduate, graduate, and non-traditional students in the academic disciplines covered by the department and prepares students for entry-level and mid-career positions as well as graduate education. Students pursing the Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental and Geographical Sciences complete the General Education Curriculum (GEC), an interdisciplinary program core, a defined set of courses specific to one of three concentration choices, research or an internship in a governmental or private sector organization, and a selection of upper level topical electives, as outlined in this catalogue.
Students seeking a graduate degree in Earth Sciences should refer to the NCCU Graduate Catalog.
* The Environmental Science Program and the Department of Geography and Earth Science were combined into one department in 2006, and the degree programs merged to create the Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Geographic Sciences in 2015.
