NOTE:New course numbers took effect in fall 2015. Former course num-bers are included in course descriptions in this catalog and at this website: registrar.vanderbilt.edu/faculty/course-renumbering/course-lookup/.Program of Concentration in Earth and Environmental Sciences±hree options are available within the EES major. All provide a solid grounding in the earth and environmental sciences. ±he differences are in requirements for supporting sciences and mathematics and for research. Option I provides a background for careers or post-graduate work in related fields such as teaching, law, or business and for some graduate programs and employment opportunities in earth and environmental sci-ences. Option II prepares students well for graduate work and careers in the earth and environmental sciences. Option III (Honors) is designed for excellent, highly motivated students who want to pursue research as undergraduates.Required EES courses 32 credit hours toward major for all optionsEES 1510/1510L 4EES 2510 (or 1020 prior to fall 2011) 4EES 3220 (or 3220W prior to fall 2012) 4EES 3250 4EES 3260 4EES 3330 4EES 3340 4EES 4961 1One additional course selected from the following: EES 2110, 4420, 4550, 4600, 4820, 4830, 6200,6891 3Option I.Provides students with a comprehensive back-ground in geoscience.

Provides students with most course work needed for a career or graduate studies in geoscience. Students take the required EES courses and complete the following:Physics I (1601/1601L 4 hr)Chemistry I (1601/1601L 4 hr)Calculus I (Math 1200 3 hr or 1300 4 hr)Total credit hours: 43–44In addition, the second semesters of Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus as well as one or more courses in Biological Sci-ences are highly recommended to complete courses commonly required for graduate school or employment. Recommended selections include:Physics II (1602/1602L 4 hr) or Chemistry II (1602/1602L 4 hr) or Calculus II (Math 1201 3 hr or 1301 4 hr) Biological Sciences (1100/1100L 4hr or 1510/1510L 4 hr or 1103 or 2218 4 hr or 2219 4 hr or 2238/2238L 4 hr) or Astronomy (2110 3 hr)Option III.Honors.Provides research experience as well as course work preparation for a career or graduate studies in earth or environmental sciences. Course work is the same as for Option II with the addition of EES 4998 and 4999 (4 credit hours).Total credit hours: 47–48Interested students should apply to the undergraduate adviser for entry into the Honors program before the end of fall semester, junior year. A minimum of a 3.3 grade point aver-age both overall and in the major is required for entry into the Honors program.
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
