The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS) is uncovering Earth’s history, restoring our environment, and traveling the solar system. Our graduates become leaders that shape the future of the geosciences.
EPS equips students with the knowledge and skills to learn from Earth’s history, solve today’s problems, and plan for the future. Our alumni work at the forefront of environmental sustainability and scientific exploration.
EPS students and faculty study the past, present, and future of Earth, its environments, and other planetary bodies. They use a diverse array of techniques and equipment to answer fundamental questions about the Earth, the environment, and beyond.
