Earth System Science

Earth System Science is an interdisciplinary area, which looks at the earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and space as a completely connected system. Changes in one of these parts of the Earth will ultimately influence all others. The curriculum is developed to give graduating students a balanced view of the Earth as a whole.

An Earth System Science degree will prepare a diverse community of scientists including geologists, meteorologists, oceanographers, hydrologists, environmental scientists, public health scientists, educators and policy makers who have the geoscience knowledge that is needed to confront critical environmental issues facing society and to protect the Earth in a collective effort.

The program will provide students with opportunities to conduct research on a large number of topics including environmental geology, coastal and ocean-related topics, atmospheric science, remote sensing, geospatial information science and modern climate variability.
