Earth, Atmosphere and Environment
Welcome to the Department of the Earth, Atmosphere and Environment (EAE) at Northern Illinois University! Our unit utilizes the natural links between geology, geography and atmospheric sciences to strengthen connections among faculty to grow interdisciplinary research and build new student programs.
Our undergraduate and graduate programs will build upon our strengths in traditional areas, while expanding into new and emerging interdisciplinary domains. In addition to classroom instruction, we offer educator licensure and a wide array of research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
