Undergraduate Research

The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences strongly encourages the participation of undergraduates in a research experience. These experiences may be undertaken AT ANY STAGE in the curriculum by students on any major or minor degree track (BS/BA in Earth & Planetary Science, BS Environmental Sciences, minors as well). Below are the basic requirements and other pertinent information.

Often this activity coincides with an Honors Thesis (see Departmental Honors; if you are unsure as to how the GPA restrictions affect your participation, meet with the Departmental Honors Advisor; download Honors guidelines here; download application for the Departmental Honors Program here).

Please contact the departmental Honors Advisor (Professor Laura Crossey, Rm. 339, Northrop Hall, 277-5349; lcrossey@unm.edu) or your favorite professor for further information.
