If you are planning to conduct undergraduate research, you may qualify for honors activities and an honors degree in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Jane Pilgrim, Undergraduate Advisor for EAS can guide you.
We organize field trips, hold discussions about breaking news in the Earth sciences, read peripheral but relevant material, assist in selecting and conducting research projects, publish peer-reviewed papers, compete for research grants and awards (such as Sigma Xi, GSA, AAPG, and AGU), study abroad, research graduate schools, and participate in a myriad of other productive activities.
To gain admission consult with the honors advisor, usually no later than the beginning of your junior year. The honors program includes additional academic support and networking outside IU.
