Admission Requirements: B.S. in Geology, Geophysics, Chemistry, or Physics.
Option: Thesis, Publishable Paper, or Non-Thesis
Core Requirements:  
GEOE 422 - Groundwater Flow Modeling 
GEOE 429 - Field Hydrogeology 
GEOE 520 - Advanced Hydrogeology 
Seminar Requirements: T.C. 5150 - Graduate Writing Seminar  or equivalent; GSCI 5940 - Graduate Seminar  (1)

The final examination for thesis-option students will consist of an oral presentation and defense of the thesis. Questions may be asked on any topic related to the thesis or course work taken as part of the graduate program. The presentation will be open to all interested parties, but the defense will be open only to the graduate committee.

The final examination for non-thesis option students will consist of a written and/or oral examination formulated by the student’s graduate committee. The oral examination will draw questions from the written examination plus any course work undertaken as part of the graduate program.
