The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences offers the study of Earth’s component materials, the development of its structures and surface features, the processes by which these change with time, and the origin, discovery, and protection of its resources—water, fuels, and minerals. Our students use techniques ranging from seismological and satellite-tracking investigations of crustal motions to state-of-the-art geochemical instruments.
We encourage college students and graduates with undergraduate degrees in science to apply to our M.S. or Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Sciences program. We encourage working professionals with undergraduate degrees in science to apply to our Professional Master's M.S. in Earth and Environmental Sciences program.
