Earth Sciences-Physics is one of several interdepartmental programs offered at UNB. This program gives students the opportunity to study earth sciences and physics jointly to cover a broad base of topics in both departments, and can be tailored to individual student interests.

Combining courses in earth sciences and physics (commonly termed geophysics) develops a student's ability to use quantitative methods for the analysis and monitoring of physical processes and physical properties of the solid Earth; its gravitational and magnetic fields; its internal structure and composition; its groundwater systems; and its surrounding atmospheric and space environment.
