After Kean, I want to attend graduate school to study seismology to help predict when the catastrophic San Andreas earthquake will occur. Kean's program is so great because we get to apply what we learn in class to hands-on experience through fieldwork, labs, and research. One of my favorite aspects is learning the various computer programs (GIS, Terrset for remote sensing, Matlab) that top companies and researchers use to complete in-class projects.
