Your Graduate Experience
Each M.S. program has its own required core courses (a list of these courses may be obtained from your faculty mentor). In consultation with your faculty mentor and graduate committee, you will develop a program of study that outlines the courses that will be required for completion of the degree. You will choose from a variety of graduate and selected undergraduate courses offered in your area of emphasis.
If you are accepted into the graduate program with undergraduate degrees other than Geology, Environmental Science or Natural Resource Sciences and need to complete additional courses to cover deficiencies please note that courses taken to satisfy deficiencies cannot be included in the program of study.
