Geosciences, B.S.G.S./M.S.

Return to the Department of Geosciences .

Return to Combined Programs .  

The combined Bachelor’s/Master’s degree program allows highly motivated students to earn a Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Science degree in Geology or Geophysics in five years. The combined program requires the same number of credits and level of work as the current bachelor’s and master’s (thesis option) degree programs, but allows an approved number of 5000 level courses to be counted toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.

The typical undergraduate student will apply to the Graduate School for admission to the combined program at the end of the sophomore year or the beginning of the junior year. Because of the rigor and pace of this program, a minimum of a 3.5 undergraduate GPA is required for admission. Students interested in the combined BS/MS should contact the Graduate Advisor or any faculty member of the Department of Geosciences for more information concerning the program.
