EART Elective: Classes numbered 100 or above in Earth or Ocean sciences (EART or OCEA). Consider choosing from classes 100-109 before taking EART 110A/B/C. There may also be useful upper-division courses in CHEM, PHYS, ASTR, METX, ask the Earth and planetary sciences adviser for more information.

*Students who wish to complete their capstone with EART 189A and EART 189B should be aware that the following courses are prerequisites: EART 109 and EART 109L, EART 110A and EART 110L, and EART 110B and EART 110M. Students must also complete EART 189B in summer to fulfill the summer field capstone.

†Students expecting to write a senior thesis for their comprehensive requirement are required to contact the department at least three quarters before graduation to identify the intended project and faculty adviser. Senior theses usually require at least two or three quarters for completion.
