The Department of Earth Science works to provide a friendly atmosphere for all students. The relatively small size of the Department means that graduate students have regular access to their advisors and other professors in the Department; interactions with members of other departments on campus and outside investigators are encouraged. Undergraduate students play a visible and important role in our research and in Departmental life. Owing to these factors and more, we feel that we offer a unique and exceptional opportunity for outstanding students interested in graduate study in the Earth sciences with attentive faculty collaborators.

McCulloch Graduate Fellowships in Environmental Change
Dartmouth created the McCulloch Graduate Fellows program in recognition of Normal E. McCulloch Jr. '50 at the end of 2013. The McCulloch Fellowship augments a standard one-year graduate stipend up to $30,000, and also provides a research and professional travel fund of $5,000.
Up to four candidates with interests in environmental change will be selected annually. Nominations from the sponsoring graduate program must be made to the Dean of Graduate Studies by March 1st.
Some of our research subjects

Individuals wishing to learn more about specific research programs should contact respective faculty members for details.
The Current Whitebook
The Whitebook (PDF) is a guide to assist incoming and resident graduate students in the dual tasks of working toward a degree in Earth Sciences and surviving in Hanover. You must be on campus to download this document, though we would be happy to email a copy to you upon request.
Students should refer to the ORC as the document of record for all academic questions. Archived copies of the ORC can be found here.
