Undergraduate Admissions Procedure

Prospective undergraduates seeking to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in the department of Earth and Environmental Sciences should apply to either Columbia College or the School of General Studies (for returning and nontraditional students).

The department collaborates with the Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science which offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Earth and Environmental Engineering. Prospective students interested in the BS degree should apply to the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Rabi Scholars Program

Columbia College initiated the Rabi Scholars Program in memory of 1944 Nobel Laureate and Columbia physics faculty member I. I. Rabi. About ten incoming first year students who demonstrate exceptional promise in the sciences are chosen to be Rabi Scholars, a designation retained for their four years at Columbia College. This distinction guarantees summer research jobs with free summer housing on campus, as well as other benefits.
