Master Programs in Natural Sciences Earth Science Geoscience

If you are looking for a top-notch masters degree program in geology and at the same time be interested in practical applications on the environmental field, then a masters program in Geoscience might be the appropriate program for you.

A masters program in Geoscience is not just a masters in geology degree. It combines both expertise in theoretical areas of geology and technical expertise in geochemistry, hydrogeology, engineering geology, and geophysics. This program prepares a student to tackle a wide range of both practical and pressing environmental problems, in the field where you can make a real and practical difference.

A masters program in Geoscience is applicable in places where the following environmental challenges occur: Soil and water contamination; Waste disposal; Human-induced natural disasters like landslides and floods; and the need for extraction methods for environmentally safe energy.

A student of the program can focus on any of the above fields in geoscience that interests them the most. Some of the available areas for specialization include: hydrogeology, engineering geology, and environmental geology. The program is offered either full-time or part-time. The masters degree in Geoscience program provides academic foundation for licensure as a professional Geologist.
