For Prospective Undergraduates

The study of environmental, earth, and ocean systems is a vital part of ensuring a healthy future for our planet and all its inhabitants. The College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE) is dedicated to advancing the understanding of Earth’s natural systems and the interactions of humans with the environment through engaged interdisciplinary research, teaching, and outreach. With a deep commitment to excellence in academics, research and public outreach, CEOE’s goal is to produce well-rounded scientists, researchers, educators and policy specialists who have the broad vision and interdisciplinary background necessary to address the sweeping, interrelated issues that are part of the study of ocean, earth and environmental systems and the human and societal connections.

Our multidisciplinary approach trains students to handle complex issues from multiple perspectives, giving them a competitive advantage in their careers.

From the classrooms and labs at our campuses in Newark and Lewes to field work throughout the state, region, and worldwide, our faculty and students are connected in active and engaging learning environments.
