Greetings from the faculty in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, home of the Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Geology, and Meteorology undergraduate programs and Geophysics/Geology and Meteorology graduate programs. Thank you for visiting our web site, which we hope is informative and meets your needs. If you have any questions for which you would like an answer, please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
There are currently 16 full-time faculty members in the Department, all of whom have doctorate degrees in their field of expertise. We also have several research scientists and adjunct faculty who teach and/or do research in the Department. There are currently 100+ students majoring in our undergraduate programs; approximately 50 students in meteorology, 40 to 50 students in our environmental science and environmental studies programs, and 10 students in geology. There are 30 graduate students in residence, 15 in meteorology and 15 in geosciences, the majority of whom are in the geophysics (seismology) program. You can obtain more information about each of these programs by clicking on the links below.
Most students apply during the winter prior to a fall semester matriculation. In most cases, you need to have an official high school or college transcript forwarded to our Admissions Office, letters of recommendations, and applicable test scores such as ACT, SAT, or GRE. You can obtain more information about admissions by clicking on the links below.
Obtaining a higher education is not cheap, and many students need financial aid to attend Saint Louis University. Fortunately, our university is able to provide significant financial aid to many undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty members are also able to fully or partly support students who participate in research. You can obtain more information about financial aid by clicking on the links below.
Thank you again for visiting our web site and we hope to hear from you soon.
