Return to: 3290 Department of Geosciences
The department offers a dual Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Sciences (B.S.) and Master of Science in Geosciences. The dual degree program is designed for high-achieving Georgia State undergraduate students majoring in Geosciences and allows students to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in just five years. Students are able to take up to four graduate-level courses as they complete their undergraduate degree, which would then apply to both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program by the department and College of Arts and Sciences to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program following college processes.
Information about the dual program, including application instructions and program requirements, can be found at cas.gsu.edu/dual-degrees/. Interested students may contact the dual-degree director at the address above.
Further information concerning specific courses applicable to each program, concentration and its disciplinary specializations is available in the departmental publication, Guide to Graduate Studies in Geosciences, which may be obtained from the department.
