Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) majors at MIT used to be required to pick one of several tracks (geoscience, environmental science, atmospheres/oceans/climate, or planetary science/astronomy), but now (starting with the class of 2013) can combine fields using this guide. All students complete three core classes, differential equations, and a thesis, and choose labs and advanced classes based on their field of interest. EAPS is a small department, with small classes and accessible professors. Most classes and professors offices are located in the green building (building 54).
