Home | Mission | Goals & Objectives | Learning Outcomes | Curriculum Matrix | Assessment Plan | Indicators of Success

The success of the MS Geosciences lies in the post-graduation successes of our students.  As an applied program, the department values employment of our students in the private and governmental sectors.  We strive for 100% employment and anecdotal reports show a very high rate of success.

As part of the program assessment, the department monitors feedback from employers, Ph.D. schools, and the advisory board.  Although largely anecdotal, recurring comments note the strength of our students with regard to field skills, broad geological knowledge, and analytical capabilities.  As a department, we continually strive to build on our strengths, employing the standing Advisory Board as well as guest speakers from the private and governmental sectors, to advise us on current trends and best practices.
