Ph.D. in Geology

The Ph.D. degree in Geology is a research-oriented interdisciplinary program. Students participate in high-impact research and scholarship to develop, apply, and disseminate scientific knowledge about Earth and planetary systems and their evolution in space and time. Research areas within the geology program span a wide range of sub-disciplines and geographic locations. 
Students design their specific curriculum of high-quality, skills-based geology courses with their major professor and advisory committee. This flexibility enables students to tailor their degree to support their research interests and career goals.
