We strive to educate well-rounded scientists and policy specialists with the broad vision needed to address today’s global problems.

Concerns such as climate change, globalization and migration, marine pollution, watershed degradation, energy independence and fisheries decline are at the heart of our work at CEOE. Meeting these challenges often demands expertise in several disciplines, and our curriculum reflects this reality.

Three themes of focus emerge in our work: 

Our earth is constantly changing, from storms that reshape coastlines to geological processes that take place over millions of years.
