Geochemistry is an interdisciplinary field of study in which the science of chemistry is used to solve earth science problems. Areas of study include the full spectrum of topics from the determination of the thermodynamic properties of minerals, to the determination of the migration of pollutant species within a soil or hydrologic environment and the geobotanical/biogeochemical search for ore deposits. The geochemistry option is centered in the Chemistry and Geochemistry Department. Students acquire relatively strong backgrounds in chemistry and can choose thesis topics ranging among a large variety of geochemical/environmental topics.

Admission requirements: B.S. in chemistry, geology, or any area of science or engineering.
Prerequisite geology and chemistry courses: A reasonable number of courses in chemistry and geology.
Option: Thesis, Publishable Paper or Non-Thesis 
Seminar Requirements: T.C. 5150 - Graduate Writing Seminar  or equivalent; GSCI 5940 - Graduate Seminar
