The Master's Thesis

M.S. in Geological Sciences

All students must select a permanent faculty adviser and write a thesis. The graduate thesis is the culmination of the student's graduate training. It should be thoughtfully conceived and carefully developed. The topic for the thesis should be chosen by the student and the permanent faculty adviser by the second semester of residence. This choice should be made in terms of the scientific merit of the thesis problem. Choices based solely on the amount of available financial assistance generally lead to frustration and unsatisfactory professional development. Hence, financial considerations should be of secondary importance.
