About the Program
A broad training in fundamental science, enriched by specialized coursework within the division, forms the basis of the graduate educational program. Students in the Geological and Planetary Sciences program at California Institute of Technology - Caltech are encouraged to work with complex and often incomplete data sets, to use the many modern laboratory facilities available within the division, and to undertake research in natural settings outside the lab. GPS's flexible curriculum allows graduate students with diverse backgrounds and degrees in science and engineering to carry out their graduate work within GPS while simultaneously pursuing interdisciplinary studies within a number of Caltech's other academic divisions.
