About

The Earth and Environmental Science Education - Life, Earth Sciences Education course offered by Wright State University combines fundamental courses in earth sciences with basic courses in related sciences. It also requires courses in areas outside of science. The Bachelor of Arts program is flexible enough to combine with a dual major in an unrelated field. 

Overview

The Earth and Environmental Science Education - Life, Earth Sciences Education course offered by Wright State University is designed for students pursuing careers as high school (Adolescent/Young Adult) teachers. Upon completion of the degree, students who wish to pursue teaching licensure must then complete the Professional Educators Program Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree, which is available through Wright State’s College of Education and Human Services. 

Earth science (also known as geology) is the study of the earth.  This includes the processes that shape its surface (both land and water) and interior. It focuses on current and past processes. Many professional earth scientists work to protect natural resources, including water and environments. Professional earth scientists also explore for new resources such as oil, gas, or minerals. Others find careers as high school teachers.

Career Opportunities:

The Earth Sciences Concentration is designed for students planning careers in fields such as environmental consulting or resource exploration. Other careers include public service within local, state, or federal regulatory agencies (EPA, Ohio EPA). It is also a choice for students planning graduate study in earth and environmental sciences.
