About

The Geological Sciences program from University at Buffalo focuses on advancing our understanding of earth and applying that knowledge to problems of societal importance.

Overview

We've designed our doctoral-level track for students who desire a career in academia, or other careers that require advanced training in research methodology. Students may enter the track with a BS or MS degree. Typically, a student entering with a BS degree will require four years to complete the track, while a student entering with an MS will complete the track in three years.

Features

Students applying with other science or engineering degrees must have 12 credits in advanced geology and attend a Geology Field Camp, or must complete these requirements during their doctoral program. The Geological Sciences PhD advisor from University at Buffalo may require additional prerequisites depending on the course of study.
