We've designed our master's-level degree program for students considering a career as a professional geologist, or continuing on to a PhD level of study in the geosciences. A designated faculty member closely supervises the student and a typical MS program is expected to take two years to complete.
Students entering the MS program generally hold a BA or BS in Geology. Students applying with other science or engineering degrees must have 12 credits in advanced geology and attend a Geology Field Camp, or must complete these requirements during their master's program. The MS advisor may require additional prerequisites depending on the course of study.
