SESE undergraduate degrees provide students with the initial training for career paths in the earth and space sciences, systems engineering, environmental science and engineering, sustainbility and environmental policy, and a variety of aerospace fields. Our newest undergraduate degree programs are the revolutionary B.S. in Earth and Space Exploration, the only such program of its kind, and the B.A. in Earth and Environmental Studies. The School of Earth and Space Exploration also offers minors in Astronomy and Geological Sciences (geology).
The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) is composed of a broad coalition of faculty and graduate students focused on top-shelf research. We offer diverse research experiences for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees that are largely tailored to students’ individual interests and backgrounds. For example, students may work with a single faculty member or participate in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative project. All graduate students are strongly encouraged to expand their research horizons and accept challenges in ways that help them grow into creative and independent researchers.
Ph.D. students entering our graduate program receive a minimum of three years guaranteed funding through research and teaching fellowships and MS students receive a minimum of 2 years guaranteed funding. Our graduate students also enjoy the amenities of a contemporary urban environment, a very reasonable cost of living, and more than 300 days of sunshine annually. We invite you to explore the links describing our major areas of research, potential faculty mentors, degree requirements, financial support details, and admissions process for graduate students in the School of Earth and Space Exploration.
