Academics & Admissions
The Earth System Science department does not have an undergraduate program. However, many of its faculty teach in the popular, interdisciplinary Earth Systems Program, which offers a BS and co-terminal MS degree.
The Department of Earth System Science offers a PhD program in a wide range of fields. The size and the breadth of interest of the department's faculty provide numerous opportunities for field-based research as well as laboratory and numerical experiments. We apply the most modern applications of instrumental analysis and spectroscopy to problems in the Earth sciences.
