Dear Julie: Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to compile such a
list.  We would very much appreciate you including our brand new
geocognition Ph.D. program on your list at the University of Wyoming.  The
program can be done in the College of Education and in a growing number of
the Arts&Sciences Departments here at the Universityof Wyoming.  

       University of Wyoming:  Tim Slater, Jimm Myers

Subject: List of MS or PhD programs in Geoscience Education/Geocognition


I am compiling a list of MS or PhD programs in Geoscience Education or  
Geocognition to post on my website. I have a list, but I am not  
confident that the list is complete nor entirely accurate. I would  
appreciate it if you could email me if you have additions or  
corrections for this list. Some of these programs are housed in  
geoscience departments, some are housed in education departments, and  
some are in interdisciplinary institutes. I have not included programs  
that more broadly target earth/space/astronomy education on this  
specific list as lists of space/astronomy education programs exist  
elsewhere. I think the growth of graduate education opportunities in  
geosci ed/geocog over the past three years is amazing! Well done,  

Tentative List of Geoscience Education/Geocognition Programs
*List may not be exhaustive

MS only
Northern Colorado University: Joe Elkins, Steve Anderson
Kansas State University: Iris Totten

MS or PhD (I think)
Michigan State University: Julie Libarkin
North Carolina State University: David McConnell
Western Michigan University: Heather Petcovic
Arizona State University: Steve Semken
Purdue University: Eric Riggs, Dan Shepardson
University of South Florida: Jeff Ryan, Len Vacher
Texas A&M: Bruce Herbert
University of Akron: David Steer

Take care and Happy Holidays!
