Master of Science (M.Sc.) Earth and Planetary Sciences (Thesis) (45 credits)

Offered by: Earth & Planetary Sciences     Degree: Master of Science

Program Requirements

The Master of Science in Earth and Planetary Sciences (Thesis) provides the opportunity to conduct research, and it focuses on a broad range of geological, Earth systems, and planetary science topics. Research may encompass natural physical and chemical processes across the age of the solar system, their interaction with life forms, and the impact of human activities on our environment. A major component of the program is an M.Sc. thesis that reports the main findings of the research. Research for the thesis typically begins in the first year of residence and is completed with mentorship from our faculty, in the second year of residence.
