Bachelor of Science in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences - General

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/earth-atmospheric-sciences-general-bs/

The EAS degree is comparable to traditional degrees in meteorology and environmental sciences, but the program has several unique attributes. EAS courses provide "hands-on" experiences in collection and interpretation of environmental data and in predictive modeling. The integrated approach of the program gives a broad environmental background while still allowing students to specialize in meteorology, earth science, education, or a business option. The program prepares students for graduate study or immediate employment in fields such as meteorology, air quality, environmental chemistry, exploration geophysics, geological engineering, geological hazards, impact assessment, and environmental policy. Electives (30 hours), both within the School and in other units of Georgia Tech, allow students considerable flexibility in tailoring their degree programs according to individual career goals. The School provides incentives and encouragement for undergraduate students to participate in ongoing research with the faculty. EAS Undergraduate Information

Examples of acceptable courses include science courses which cover energy science like biomass or other relevant basic science. 2 Students should strive to complete the necessary prerequisites and the depth courses prior to enrolling in the breadth courses. However, depth courses may be taken concurrently with the courses taken to meet the breadth requirement. Breadth courses may ordinarily serve as technical or free electives in the student’s program of study. However, courses required by name and number and/or used to satisfy Core Areas A through E cannot be used to satisfy the requirements of a minor. 3 Ordinarily, students must complete all minor requirements before they can register for the Project in Energy Systems course. Program of Study - Track for Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Students The minor includes requirements for courses which cut across disciplines. These courses are intended to add breadth of knowledge in areas outside the student’s major but important to energy systems. A terminal “capstone” or project course provides an opportunity for students from multiple disciplines to work together in multidisciplinary teams on a significant project in the energy area. The breadth courses and the capstone project course, courses taken by all students completing the minor, require one or more prerequisites; specifically, basic economics, mathematics, and lab science courses. The minor must consist of at least 15 credit hours and all courses in the minor also must be 3000 level and above. A multidisciplinary or other minor may contain courses in a student’s major field of study. A maximum of 6 credit hours of such courses may be used to satisfy the course requirements for the minor, provided these courses are not also used to satisfy any course requirement in the student’s major degree program. All courses counting toward the minor must be taken on a letter-grade basis and completed with a grade of C (2.00) or better. All courses in the minor also must be 3000 level and above. Prerequisite Courses Students ordinarily pursue the minor upon completion of the needed prerequisites. However, the depth course requirements may be taken as soon as students have met the relevant prerequisites. The prerequisites needed for one or more of the courses required for the minor (breadth courses and the capstone project course) are (all existing courses): Requirements 1 The Depth Courses may have additional prerequisites; please check the current prerequisites . A list of acceptable courses which meet the depth requirement is provided by each major approving the minor. Depth courses may be taken in the student’s major to ensure the depth in that major needed to peruse a multidisciplinary minor. All acceptable depth courses must be consistent with the goals of the minor. Examples of acceptable courses include science courses which cover energy science like biomass or other relevant basic science. 2 Students should strive to complete the necessary prerequisites and the depth courses prior to enrolling in the breadth courses.

All courses in the minor also must be 3000 level and above. 3 Ordinarily, students must complete all minor requirements before they can register for the Project in Energy Systems course. Additional Guidelines A maximum of 6 credit hours of Special Topics courses may be included in a minor program or the student may complete 3 credit hours of Special Topics and 3 credit hours of either Special Problems or Undergraduate Research. A maximum of 3 credit hours of transfer credit may be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor. This includes courses taken at another institution or credit earned through the AP or IB program, assuming the scores meet Georgia Tech minimum standards. It is the major advisor’s responsibility to verify that students are using only courses from the designated block(s) from the student’s major field of study that are allowed to satisfy a minor program, that they are not using any Core Area A-E courses (including humanities and social sciences), and that they are not using any courses for more than one minor or certificate. Any free elective course used to satisfy the course requirements of the student’s major degree program may also be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor.
