Rackham's COVID-19 Resources for Graduate Students


The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences awards PhD and MS degrees.

The Department welcomes applications to its graduate program from students with a keen interest in advancing knowledge in the Earth Sciences. The goal of our graduate program is to provide students with the critical and analytical skills and technical expertise to conduct independent and creative research. While many of our students will find successful careers in the Earth sciences, our mission is to develop broad-minded individuals with a sense of purpose, who can be leaders in any career of their choice.

For University of Michigan undergraduate students who are currently pursuing an Earth and Environmental Sciences major, we offer a fifth-year MS program.


MICDE PhD in Scientific Computing

This joint degree program is intended for PhD students who will make extensive use of large-scale computation, computational methods, or algorithms for advanced computer architectures in their doctoral studies. Students may apply to the Scientific Computing program after completing one term in their primary PhD program.
