MS in Geosciences

Program Highlights

The success of the MS in 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, PhD 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.
