UCLA offers an undergraduate program in space
science in its Geophysics and Space Physics program in the Earth and Space
Sciences and graduate programs leading to advanced degrees
in Space Physics in both the Earth and Space Science and Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
departments. Both Masters and Ph.D programs are offered. Application information and forms can be found on the homepages of these departments. Prospective graduate students should apply to either the Earth and Space Sciences Department or to the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Department. If they so request, their files will be circulated to all UCLA Space Physics faculty for their consideration.
Fellowships are available from the
California Space Grant Consortium for incoming graduate students,
from the IGPP, and from the two departments. Research assistantships are also
provided by individual faculty members. In addition, the Space Grant Consortium supports curriculum development
efforts in the space science and aerospace engineering departments. Educational
enhancement projects at UCLA have included the textbook
"Introduction to Space Physics" and
software for the computer-assisted
instruction in space physics. Some of these exercises are available on
the web. A number of review articles written for the educated layman are
available as on-line tutorials covering
some of the research now being done at UCLA.
