Update Regarding EES Graduate PhD Applications - 2020-2021

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.
