Degree Requirements

The Master of Science degree in Geophysics (Solid Earth) may be earned under either of the plans outlined below:

With Thesis:
The student’s course of study must be approved by the student’s advisory committee and must fulfill the general requirements for the master’s degree with thesis and must include (unless taken in undergraduate work):

  • ERTH 325, 445, and 448, or their equivalents
  • Upper-division geology, six credit hours
  • Competence in mathematics corresponding to nine credit hours beyond calculus
  • At least six credit hours of GEOP 591, two credit hours of GEOP 592
  • Twelve additional credit hours in graduate geophysics (up to six credit hours of this requirement may be replaced with nongeophysics graduate courses with the advisor’s approval)

Without Thesis:
Courses approved by the student’s advisory committee must fulfill the general requirements for the master’s degree without thesis and must include (unless taken in undergraduate work):

  • ERTH 325, 445, and 448, or their equivalents
  • Upper-division geology, six credit hours
