Graduate Programs

The City College offers the following master’s degree in Earth and Atmospheric Science: M.A. in Geology


The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences has developed a unique version of the Earth Systems Science (ESS) model, the proposed national curriculum in earth sciences. The focus of ESS is to integrate the chemical and physical principles which interlink earth processes and features. The integrated curriculum gives us the flexibility to offer research training in the following areas:

    Earth Systems Science
    Environmental Studies Remote
    Sensing/Geographic Information Systems

Students who receive an M.A. from the EAS Department will be prepared for employment in environmental companies and government agencies, as well as for Ph.D. level studies in ESS, Geology, Environmental Sciences, Environmental Public Policy, or Terrestrial Ecology.
