Graduate Programs

CEOAS graduate programs challenge students to seek out new ideas and innovative approaches to the complex issues involved in studying the Earth as an integrated system. This includes conducting fundamental research on the atmospheric, biological, geological, geographic, and physical processes in the solid earth, ocean, and atmosphere. Graduate students also perform applied research on marine and natural resource management issues; exploring the relevant aspects of social sciences by providing insight into how social and earth sciences inform each other. We aim to help students realize their personal and professional goals through training and development of research, teaching, and professional skills.
