The Earth and Space Science Education concentration is a balance of theory, laboratory skills and teaching techniques.

A wide background of study prepares students to become professionals who can communicate science, who can understand the interaction between science and society, who can help legislate science-informed policy, and who can speak with wisdom about the interactions between science and faith.
