EARTHSYS 10 (Introduction to Earth Systems) field trip to Hopkins Marine Station

The Earth Systems major at Stanford University is a broad based interdisciplinary environmental science major for undergraduates and coterminal MS students. The course of study focuses on environmental processes and issues on regional to global scales. After completing a cognate core designed to introduce students to different components of the environment's functions, students focus their studies through one of five tracks: Anthrosphere, Biosphere, Energy Science & Technology, Oceans, or Land Systems & Land Use.
