The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences has a small but ambitious PhD program. The moderate size of the department and low student/faculty ratio allow close personal interactions between the students and faculty. We offer students a variety of research choices within the geological sciences field allowing students to specialize in one area, or explore a vast array of interdisciplinary studies.
