Graduate Programs

The M.S. in geology program requires completion of 30 semester hours of graduate geology (which could include some approved courses in other science disciplines), including 24 semester hours of coursework and six hours of thesis research and writing (Geology 589 and 590). Graduate students pursuing an M.S. in geology are required to take at least one graduate course from each graduate faculty member. M.S.N.S. students wishing to develop a concentration in geology should have an undergraduate background in geology. The M.S.N.S. degree may consist of 36 semester hours of graduate courses without a thesis or 24 semester hours of graduate courses plus six hours of thesis research and writing (Geology 589 and 590).

A graduate minor in geology consists of a minimum of nine semester hours of graduate courses in geology.
