We've designed our doctoral-level program for students who desire a career in academia, or other careers that require advanced training in research methodology. Students may enter the program with a BS or MS degree. Typically, a student entering with a BS degree will require four years to complete the program, while a student entering with an MS will complete the program in three years.
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 doctoral program. The PhD advisor may require additional prerequisites depending on the course of study.
