Earning a graduate degree will not only enrich you personally but will also widen your career opportunities and significantly increase your expected lifetime earnings. If you are motivated and interested in joining the Earth and Climate Sciences program of The University of Maine, then we want to hear from you!
Admission to our program is contingent upon identifying an advisor and having a financial plan in place to fund the student and the research. Therefore, it is critical that prospective students contact potential advisors before submitting an application. We occasionally are able to admit students who have not contacted potential advisors, but this is uncommon.
Our graduate students work with their faculty advisors in Maine as well as in many parts of the world. Projects are commonly interdisciplinary involving several different science and engineering Departments at UMaine. Our students list this as a big strength of our program. Students commonly attend professional meetings in the US and abroad to share their research, and to meet prospective employers and graduate or postdoctoral advisors.
