Soil Science is the field that examines the formation, distribution, functioning, and management of soils. Wyoming is an important natural resources state with many energy extraction, mining, and wild land management issues. As a result, there are many interesting soil-related research questions in the state with significant socio-economic impacts. Most of our students pursue careers with federal land management or conservation agencies (i.e., Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Natural Resources Conservation Society), state and federal regulatory agencies (i.e., Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality), mining and oil companies, environmental consulting companies, or scientific research organizations. The M.S. program is geared toward teaching graduate students the tools necessary to conduct robust scientific research. This program requires 30 credit hours (at least 12 from Soil Science) approved by the student's graduate advisory committee and an approved research plan.
