The earth/space science teaching program provides a broad earth science core; a strong background in math, chemistry, and physics; and courses in education covering student development, integration of content and teaching methods, use of technology, fostering community, and assessing outcomes. The Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) Department has a low faculty-to-student ratio, which allows students to have a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. All undergraduates are encouraged to take part in research.
Points of Pride
- EAPS faculty are an integral part of the Purdue Climate Change Research Center, a world-class multidisciplinary research center focused on interrelated aspects of climate change, its impacts, and mitigation.
- The Purdue Stable Isotope (PSI) facility is a state-of-the-art multi-user, stable isotope laboratory where faculty and students conduct research in a range of environmental areas, including biogeochemistry, hydrology, ecology, and paleoclimatology.
