Digital curation is an emerging field that encompasses the planning and management of digital assets over their full lifetime, from conceptualization through active use and presentation to long-term preservation in a repository for future re-use.

Museums worldwide are now routinely digitizing all collection objects as they are acquired and loaned, not only for access but as documentation in the event of loss, damage or theft. They are also digitizing significant portions or even all of their holdings in order to create the robust websites that the public now expects.

Earth and Planetary Sciences

Doctoral Major Minor Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences offers programs of study and research in the basic earth sciences, including: geology, the science of the solid earth; geochemistry, devoted to understanding the chemistry of the solid earth and natural waters; geophysics, concerned with a quantitative description of physical processes in the earth and planetary sciences; physical oceanography, the study of ocean currents and waves, and their role in climate; atmospheric sciences, particularly the dynamics of atmospheric circulation both on Earth and other planets and their satellites; and ecology and paleoecology, the study of the relationships between organisms and their environment today and in the geologic past.

The department offers two majors: students can choose to major in earth and planetary sciences (EPS) or in global environmental change and sustainability (GECS).

The EPS major is for undergraduates interested in the study of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that shape the Earth and the other planets, drawing on the disciplines of geology, geochemistry, hydrology, ecology, geobiology, oceanography, and atmospheric science.

The GECS major is an interdepartmental program introducing students to the science of the Earth and its living and nonliving systems, as well as how humans interact with Earth and its natural systems and how humans can use powerful tools, such as policy and communication, to harm or help those systems. The goals are to advance awareness of the magnitude and consequences of these issues and to train the next generation of problem-solvers who will address the effects of global environmental change.

Doctoral Master's Full-time Hybrid In-person
  • Bloomberg School of Public Health

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences is concerned with the adverse influence of the environment on human health and with controlling these influences. In this regard, the department considers “environment” in its broadest sense, including the natural, built, and social environments.

Traditionally, the field of environmental health sciences has focused on hazardous agents in the environment, including biological, chemical, and physical environmental agents. The department engages in a number of activities within this traditional approach, including studies of the sources and environmental distribution of such agents; human exposure to such agents; the body’s response at the molecular, cellular, organ system- and whole-body levels; environmental risk assessment; and prevention and intervention strategies (including environmental engineering, law, policy, and communications solutions).
