Update Regarding 2020–2021 EES Graduate PhD Applications

Hayden Hall

We regret to announce that the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania will not accept applications for the PhD program during the 2020-21 admissions cycle. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the School of Arts of Sciences made the difficult decision to focus resources on supporting current students and ensuring that we are in a position to fully support future cohorts of Penn graduate students.  Therefore, we will pause bringing new PhD students into the program for one year, with the expectation of welcoming a new cohort of graduate students in the fall of 2022.The Earth and Environmental Science Professional Master's Program remains open and will be accepting applications through the 2020-21 admissions cycle.
