Introduction to ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration

SESE: The Edge of Exploration

At the School of Earth and Space Exploration, we’ve brought together all of Earth and space science into one school, breaking the traditional disciplinary boundaries so that we can ask the biggest questions that we have in science.  We’re combining the strengths of science, engineering, and education, to set the stage for a new era of exploration.


The interdisciplinary work of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration brings together the brightest minds in astronomy and astrophysics, cosmology, geosciences, planetary sciences, exploration systems engineering and science education.

Public Engagement

The Earth and the universe beyond belong to all of us — not just to scientists and researchers. At ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, we are committed to sharing our growing understanding of Earth and space with the community.

Degree Programs

Our bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs are designed to challenge students, to encourage critical thinking and scientific inquiry, and to inspire exploration.
