What to Expect
Our research-intensive yet flexible curriculum covers an abundance of disciplines such as environmental geochemistry, stable isotopes, meteoritics, planetary geology, planetary geophysics, stratigraphy and sedimentology, paleoclimatology, mineral physics and high-temperature geochemistry. Regardless of your focus, you’ll build an understanding of how the geological sciences incorporate elements from other major scientific realms like biology, chemistry, physics and even the social sciences.
Thanks to our small department size, we have a close-knit mentoring environment that allows you to gain unique preparation for all aspects of academic life at the highest levels. From teaching and proposal preparation to interactions with the public and the pursuit of significant research achievements, we guide you in the best practices that will help you stand out in the future job market.
We grant research opportunities in field and observational, experimental, computational, and theoretically based disciplines.
