Earth Sciences serves as a core discipline in Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences and helps students understand some of the most pressing issues of our day including climate change, natural resources, and hazards. The study of the Earth places the consequences of our activities such as pollution, land use, resource exploitation, and population growth into the greater framework of Earth history and planetary evolution.
Earth Sciences was one of the University’s first Ph.D.-granting departments. SMU grants undergraduate degrees in geology, geophysics, environmental geology, environmental sciences, and environmental studies, and in geology, geophysics, and applied geophysics at the graduate level.
