Return to the Department of Geosciences .

The accelerated master’s degree program allows highly motivated students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Geophysics (B.S.G.P.)  degree and Master of Science (M.S.) degree in geophysics in five years. The accelerated 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 accelerated master’s 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 G.P.A. is required for admission. Students interested in the accelerated master’s program should contact the Graduate Advisor or any faculty member of the Department of Geosciences for more information.
