Marine Geology and Geophysics

The 5-year B.S./M.S. in Geological Sciences and Marine Geology program is open to qualified students upon invitation, after their acceptance to the Honors Program. It allows completion of a Master's degree in one year of study beyond the B.S.

By no later than 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.
