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.
