Sample curriculum: Ph.D. in Earth & Planetary Sciences and M.S. in Environmental Science from the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering

 

Graduate students enrolled in the EPS Ph.D. program can apply to receive M.S. in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering after fulfilling the requirements of a Masters in Environmental Science, i.e. they must successfully complete a coordinated sequence of ten courses (30 credits), with special emphasis in environmental flows. 

 

Possible sequence of 10 courses would include:

 

570.432           Sediment Transport and River Mechanics (Wilcox)

570.448           Transport Phenomena and Adv. Phys/Chemical Processes (Ball/Omelia)

570.656           Environmental Transport Phenomena (Parlange)

530.621           Fluid dynamics I (Knio/Meneveau)

570.658           Vadose Zone Hydrology  (Parlange)

570.675           Micrometeorology and Atmospheric Boundary Layer  (Parlange)

570.657           Air Pollution (Ellis)

 

270.646           Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets (Olson/Waugh

270.653           Fluid Dynamics of the Earth and Planets II (Haine/Waugh)

270.625           Groundwater and Geologic Processes (Garven)

 

With these (or equivalent set) courses the student can petition the DoGEE Department for award of a M.S. degree in Environmental Sciences.

 

Completion of Ph.D. thesis in EPS requires additional courses according to EPS rules.
