Study the Earth and the Universe beyond

The School of Earth and Space Exploration is committed to high-impact scientific discovery. We ask important questions with deep consequences, and our researchers aren’t afraid to explore the great unknowns of the Earth, our Solar System and the Universe beyond. We offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees; provide unique research opportunities; collaborate across disciplines; and engage with the community. We invite you to explore all that the School of Earth and Space Exploration has to offer.

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.
