About

The graduate program in the Department of Geological Sciences from Binghamton University offers Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree programs in geological sciences.

Overview

The small size of the Geological Sciences department at Binghamton University allows students to develop strong relationships with the faculty, their peers, and the undergraduate students. 

Key Features 

  • The curriculum is heavily research-based, reflecting current geologic knowledge and practices. Funding is available to both MS and PhD students in the form of scholarships and stipends through teaching and research assistantships.
  • Students take a minimum of 6 courses from the Geoscience faculty aimed at developing specific skills for their research projects and to broaden their geological expertise. Some students will take courses from other departments or conduct independent studies when specialized knowledge not covered in the curriculum is required.

Programme Structure

  • Students develop a research topic with their primary advisor and submit a research proposal to their research committee. 
  • PhD students are required to sit for an oral preliminary exam, typically during their third semester, to assess their general understanding of the geological sciences.
