Earth and Environmental

The Earth and environmental sciences are aimed at understanding Earth's dynamic history — how Earth "works" and records its origin and age in rocks and landscapes — and how geological processes affect modern environmental and ecological systems. Among the natural sciences, ours is the quintessential interdisciplinary science, providing vital perspective on how Earth's physical and geochemical templates simultaneously sustain and threaten life, and influence human interactions with Earth.

NEW!! Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Sciences

With the approval of EES department's new Ph.D. program, graduate students now have three degree options:
(1) Ph.D. and (2) M.S. in Earth and Environmental Sciences, and (3) Ph.D. in Environmental Science via
the joint program with Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering. See our Graduate Studies page for details.
