Study With Us

Our graduate curriculum trains students for employment in industry, academia, or government agencies. We emphasize fundamental and advanced geoscience coursework in geophysics, geochemistry, and hydrogeology complemented by interdisciplinary offerings to prepare students for their future careers. The majority of our graduate students receive financial sponsorship through Research and/or Teaching Assistantships. Graduates of our program are employed as faculty members, consultants, and government scientists.

Prospective graduate students are invited to contact faculty members to discuss potential projects. Teaching and Research Assistantships are awarded on a highly competitive basis and applicants will only receive full considerations once the online application process is completed.

The Water and Environment program offers PhDMS, and MA degrees. Additionally, our students can obtain a PSM advanced certificate in Hydrogeology.
