SESES’ faculty tackle cutting-edge and societally
relevant research problems in the Southwest and across the world. No
matter what your degree program or focus area, there are many opportunities
available to study the earth sciences and the environment in the field and in
the lab. Faculty and students conduct externally funded research in
collaboration with other NAU programs, and with top researchers from other
universities in the US and internationally. Many research projects involve
scientists in state and federal agencies, which often connect students with
possible future employment. The School encourages undergraduate students
to get involved in funded lab and field-based projects, while MS and PhD
graduate students can dive deeper into their area of interest.
