For example, recent graduate students in this option have investigated the origin of hydrothermal talc mineralization in SW Montana, water-rock interaction and acid mine drainage in Butte, and the bio-geochemisty of natural wetlands near abandoned mines.

Admission Requirements: B.S. or B.A. in Geology or Geophysics.

All recent MS graduates in Geology have found jobs in their chosen field. Employment opportunities for geologists with an M.S. degree are diverse and include State and Federal government agencies (e.g., Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, USDA Forest Service, US Bureau of Land Management), resource extraction industries (mining, petroleum), and private consulting companies.
