Graduate Program

MS in Earth Sciences: Specialization in Geochemical Systems

The core curriculum for the specialization in geochemical systems usually includes three courses from:

ESCI 841: Geochemistry
ESCI 846: Analytical Geochemistry
ESCI 847: Aqueous Geochemistry
ESCI 852: Chemical Oceanography
ESCI 845: Isotope Geochemistry
ESCI 864: Data Analysis in Earth System Science
EOS/NR 844: Biogeochemistry
ESCI/EOS 815: Global Atmospheric Chemistry

In addition, ESCI 997 (Seminar in Earth Sciences, 1 cr.) and ESCI 998 (Proposal Development, 1 cr.) are required each semester of the first year, and ESCI 899 (Thesis, 6 cr. ) for those students pursuing the thesis option, for a total of 30 cr.

The non-thesis option requires 34 credits, including 2 cr. in ESCI 898 (Directed Research).

Additional electives are to be selected from 800- and 900-level courses within the department and/or from courses numbered 700 and above in related disciplines outside of the department.

All prospective students are strongly urged to contact the graduate program director (J. Matthew Davis) and individual professors to learn more about research activities, graduate opportunities, and financial aid (teaching assistantships, research assistantships, scholarships) at the University of New Hampshire.
