Training leaders to transform our understanding of the natural world.
Consistently ranked as one of the top geoscience departments in the world, our faculty take pride in preparing undergraduate and graduate students to be future leaders in academia, government, and industry.
In EAPS, you’ll find a vibrant learning community driven by shared curiosity about the natural world—and our place in it. Together, our students and researchers are engaged with challenging questions about the climate system, environmental change, natural resources, predicting and mitigating natural hazards, the origins of Earth and our solar system, and the tantalizing prospect of finding life beyond Earth.

“EAPS is an inspiring setting to delve into fundamental questions regarding the dynamics of our planet…and with direct implications for modern society.”Joanna Millstein, Phd ’23
