Degree Programs

A 5-year B.S./M.S. degree allows qualified entering freshmen to complete a B.S. in Geological Science and a M.S. in Marine Geology and Geophysics within 5 years.

The B.S. degree in Geological Sciences is offered through the Department of Geological Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Marine Geology and Geophysics is offered through the Division of Marine Geology and Geophysics in the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS).

Undergraduate requirements are listed under the B.S. degree.

By the spring of their Junior year students should have obtained a graduate faculty advisor, selected an approved topic for research, and begun work on their senior thesis as preparation for the M.S. In the senior year, students will increase their focus on graduate courses and work closely with their graduate faculty advisor.
