Beyond the Classroom

Our students have many opportunities for experiences outside the classroom. These include community outreach, as well sharing common passions through student clubs. Why not start sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm now?

Diversity Initiatives

Diversity in our ever-growing field is important and SEOE supports several initiatives to promote increased diversity in the study of the earth, ocean, and environment. We encourage any interested student to get involved.

 

Student Organizations

Student organizations and clubs will help you learn more about the field and apply what you're learning. 

 

Sustainability Initiatives

SEOE is a natural leader when it comes to sustainability initiatives on campus, in the Midlands, and in South Carolina.

 

Natural History Resources

Knowledge and understanding of the natural world is an essential element of the broader understanding of earth, ocean, and environmental systems.  Exposure to natural history is an essential element of our curriculum.  Our undergraduate degrees include field trips and experiences that immerse students in the field, be it for geological sciences, marine sciences, or environmental sciences and studies.  This experience of the natural world brings reality to classroom learning.

Field courses take advantage of resources in South Carolina and beyond.  Congaree National Park is a unique example of old-growth floodplain forest, and the nearby site of our field course in environmental sciences and studies.  The coastal and marshland habitats at the Baruch Marine Field Laboratory near Georgetown, S.C. is the setting for our field course in marine sciences.  Our geological sciences field course takes place in the western U.S., with its many opportunities to see broad expanses of geologic formations
