Masters in Environmental Earth Sciences & Geology

Environmental Earth Sciences and Geology combines tools provided by Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others to study the geologic environment and to use the accompanying principles in solving environmental problems. By studying all layers of the Earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, this discipline manages to analyse the interaction of the human with the environment, to identify the issues that we are confronted with and to find means and ways to solve or minimize those issues.

Each of the aforementioned focus areas, the layers of the Earth, presents several specialization opportunities for prospective students of this discipline, with majors ranging from Atmospheric Chemistry to Biological Oceanography or Geodynamics. Providing courses like Physical Geology, Oceanography, Energy and Mineral Resources, Atmospheric Processes, Geochemistry and Sedimentology, the field of Environmental Earth Sciences and will prepare the student to become a professional in environmental processes that can work in environmental and geotechnical research or consulting.

UMD Geological Sciences offers programs leading to the M.S or Ph.D. within the Graduate School of the University of Minnesota. Faculty and students have a close working relationship. Programs are tailored to the area of the student's specialization, in consultation with a faculty advisor. We strive for research that balances field, laboratory, and theoretical studies. Although most candidates for advanced degrees will have completed a bachelor’s degree in geology, geophysics, or related fields, students in other fields of natural science are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have at least one year each of calculus, chemistry, and physics. Field camp and/or undergraduate research experience is recommended.
