At the graduate level, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are awarded in Earth Sciences. Our graduate program encourages the academic and personal growth of students through coursework, research, and professional development opportunities. Students are encouraged to pursue graduate research in a wide range of typical disciplinary areas as well as interdisciplinary studies. Our program maintains its greatest strength in its research focus areas: Hazards, Active Tectonics & Dynamic Geomorphology, Geoarchaeology & Quaternary Studies, Hydrology & Water Resources, and Spatial & Community Analysis. Many aspects of the research we are known for taking advantage of our location along the Lower Mississippi River, which is both near the New Madrid Seismic Zone as well as the region where native American cultures thrived during the pre-Columbian era. However, our laboratory for field studies ranges across the globe. -
