Graduate Program

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences offers graduate studies leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Geology. Students with degrees in geology, any other natural science, or engineering are invited to apply.

Admission to pursue an M.S. or Ph.D. degree requires a bachelor's degree, a minimum grade point average of 2.75, and three letters of reference. TOEFL scores are required for international applicants. For more details, please consult Admissions Information and Assistantships and Fellowships.

For more information about research in the department, please go to Research Clusters. We have well-establish Research Facilities within the department and our students also benefit from access to instrumentation across campus. An important asset here at UK is the research collaboration with other groups on campus which provide additional research opportunities for our students. These often involve our adjunct faculty and include cooperation with the Kentucky Geological Survey, the Kentucky Water Resources Research Institute, and the Center for Applied Energy Research.
