BA/MA in Earth Sciences

This program offers exceptionally qualified students an opportunity to earn both the bachelor’s and the master’s degree in less time than required to obtain the degrees separately. Admission normally occurs during the fifth semester of undergraduate study, at which time a coherent program is designed to suit the student’s special interests and needs. Requirements for admission are satisfactory completion of at least three earth science courses and an overall grade point average of 3.5 or higher. Students combine coursework and directed research leading to a required thesis. For further information, contact Professor Kurtz or Professor Marchant in the department.
