Earth Sciences is a broad discipline that deals with the study of the environment and focuses on energy and mineral resources, protecting the planet, and protecting communities from environmental disasters. The rapidly declining energy resources and the cutthroat demand for energy, by industries, have brought the subject area of Earth Sciences to the fore. Earth science, also known as Geoscience, is an umbrella term that includes the study of all the four spheres of the Earth, the lithosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere, and the hydrosphere. These are then narrowed down into more specific fields of study. Earth scientists study the impact of anthropogenic activities on our environment and relate them to disaster management programs. Earth sciences have various practical implications, and exert towards building a qualitative understanding of how our planet works and evolves.

The increasing demand for energy backed with the opportunity of exploration provides colossal career options for Earth Science graduates. The rapidly evolving climatic factors require an intense understanding of earth's sustainability, by monitoring Earth's dramatic changes and contributing to an enhanced ecocritical perspective towards our planet. Therefore, the subject area promises immense and significant career options and opportunities.
