Graduate program

Student conducting research in the field

Over 60 graduate students call SEOS home. We offer integrated multidisciplinary programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in the general areas of climate, geology, geophysics, oceanography and atmospheric sciences, with an emphasis on earth system science.

We strive to reach beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to develop a breadth in our approach to major current issues. Our faculty work and teach in that framework.
