GENERAL INFORMATION: Earth System Sciences Graduate and Doctorate Programs address the growing national, regional and global demand for trained professionals in Earth System Sciences and applications. The degree emphasizes a research-oriented, global systems approach to study the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere, including their interrelationships and interactions with the biosphere. Emphasis is on the observation and quantitative analysis of Earth systems which human inflicted problems. Students completing the program will be qualified to pursue careers that require knowledge of the basics of Earth system science and the requisite tools.


The need for the programs exists because human after the industrial revolution modified the global environment faster than they understood the consequences of their changes. The major theme of the program is therefore sustainability, defined as meeting human needs and values while preserving and improving the planets life-support systems.


Graduates of Faculties of Engineering, Social Sciences and Science, those working on this subject in Ministries of Energy and Natural Resources, Environment & Forestry, General Directorate of Meteorology and Policy Making Institutions can apply for graduate study in ESS Department.

Graduates of this program will have a strong background in the theory and application of Earth Systems Science. In this respect, to develop sustainable use of natural resources, technologies, and implement policies becomes crucial, both in a national and global scale. They will be well prepared for either graduate studies or jobs in the areas environmental change (e.g. climate change) and protection, natural resource management and policy.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND PREREQUISITES: Earth System Science graduate and doctorate program s welcome graduates, i.e. B.Sc. or M. Sc. holders from the departments of Faculty of Art and Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences, and Graduate Schools (GSANS, MASC, IS, IAM). All applicants concerning admission to this program should be made through the Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences of the Middle East Technical University. Students who wish to enroll for graduate programme in the ESS must be qualified for graduate standing in METU. Proficiency in English at the minimum level of a TOEFL score of 79 or a score in EPE of 65 is required. Applicants are evaluated and accepted to the program based on their CGPA and Graduate Admission Examination (ALES). Since the ESS Graduate Program is highly interdisciplinary, requirements for admission can be flexible and each application can be judged on its own merits and the applicant’s background.


TRACKS: Earth System Science (ESS) will provide an integrated approach to analyze earth system science. Courses offered in the Program examine interactions among components of the Earth Systems under three tracks.
