The MA in Earth Sciences program is designed for the student with an undergraduate degree in the natural sciences who desires a more fundamental knowledge of geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and surface processes. Students apply a range of earth sciences field and laboratory methods toward solving quantitative problems in core disciplinary areas. This program prepares students for further graduate work in the field, or for careers in resource exploration and management, technical consulting, engineering, and environmental sciences, as well as a multitude of different jobs in the private sector and governmental agencies. Eight graduate-level courses (32 credits) are required, of which at least four must be earth sciences courses, including at least two non-research earth sciences courses (other than GRS ES 699). Three of the eight required courses can be research courses associated with thesis research.
