The Department of Earth Sciences and the School of Science work hard to make new students feel at home on campus. Starting with enrollment counseling, and followed by Office of Orientation Services, students have the opportunity to meet, work with, and get to know our staff, faculty, and advisors.

Earth Sciences instructors are accessible and offer weekly office hours to provide extra help to students, and IUPUI offers a variety of services to help students succeed. These include mentoring, peer tutoring, over 300 student organizations, and counseling support.

Full-time faculty, not graduate students, will teach all your required courses, and even your introductory classes will usually have fewer than 50 students. Your advanced classes will have just 10-15 students, and you’ll work closely with your professors. The department maintains a student-faculty ratio of 11:1.
