The thesis-based Master of Science remains the most utilizable degree for pursuing a geology-based scientific career. It permits the greatest amount of flexibility for employment opportunities in oil and gas exploration and development; environmental resource, waste, and contamination management; college-level teaching; and a slew of specialized applications in scientific laboratories and field settings. It is the degree of choice for most employers of earth scientists. The Robert L. Bolin Graduate School of Geology provides a traditional thesis-based M.S. degree, available to those with a B.S. in Geosciences (or closely-related field) and designed to be completed within two years.
