More information 


The IGES offers you general and fundamental scientific knowledge to understand the mutually interrelated processes of Earth Sciences. You may familiarize yourself with a wide array of disciplines including the principles of geology, meteorology, astronomy, climatology and hydrology. And, you will learn the methods used in Earth Sciences, and you will make connections with laboratory microscopes, geology hammers in the field and computer models in the office.
You may specialize in the field of geology to explore the deeper correlations of subsurface dynamics and how recent landforms have evolved over geologic timescales. This is all done and conveyed to you by a young and dynamic team of faculty in a custom-designed and student-specific training algorithm.
