All students who apply are considered for financial support (in the form of teaching/research assistantships, or fellowships). Almost all students admitted to our degree programs are offered financial support; M.S. students are funded for two years, and Ph.D. students are funded for four years. Details of our M.S. and Ph.D. program requirements can be found on our current graduate students page.
In addition to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, we also have an Economic Geology Professional Science Masters (PSM). This is a one-year degree designed to provide geologists with the technical and leadership skills required by mineral industries around the globe. Candidates are usually young professionals who have a Bachelor's degree in Geosciences and a job in the minerals industry. This is an unfunded degree program, and successful applicants are expected to have outside sources of support.
