A Master of Science, or a Master’s degree in Science is an academic degree delivered by Universities in many countries. A Master of Science is a popular choice after completing a Bachelor’s degree.

The Earth sciences could be generally defined as the subjects concerning the physical realities of the planet. Students enrolling in this type of program might expect to encounter various subjects, such as geology, seismology and crystallography.

The United States of America commonly called the United States, is a federal republic consisting of fifty states and a federal district. The 48 contiguous states and the federal district of Washington, D.C. are in first North America between Canada and Mexico. The state of Alaska is in northwestern North America, west of Canada and east of Russia across the Bering Strait, and the state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-North Pacific. The country also has five populated and nine unpopulated territories in the Pacific and the Caribbean.

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. -
