Earth Systems History: Graduate Studies

Our graduate program is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in many fields of science who are interested in pursuing an understanding of the processes that have shaped and are shaping our Earth's climate and environment. ESH students conduct Ph.D. research within the Dept. of Geological Sciences at Brown, one of the top-ranked programs in the world. Graduate students take courses within and outside the department, and may pursue joint programs with Brown partners, including the Marine Biological Laboratory at Wood's Hole.
