Each summer, Master of Science in Applied Geosciences (MSAG) and Master of Environmental Studies (MES) faculty and staff join incoming students for an off-campus retreat. Along with professional development workshops, students get to know their peers, plan their curriculum, and learn about resources at Penn.
For guidelines on getting started in the Applied Geosciences program, curriculum, policies and procedures, and more, refer to the Applied Geosciences Student Handbook (PDF).
