Ph.D. Geophysics

Ph.D. in Geophysics is 3 to 5 years degree program. In this program, students learn how to conduct research and apply it to the exploration of natural resources and the production of energy as well as the protection of the environment. Geophysics is a multidisciplinary field that includes geology, physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics as well as other disciplines. Specific credit hours in engineering or mathematics coursework, as well as chemistry with laboratory, are required for some programs to be completed. The majority of geophysics programs require students to complete core courses that broaden their understanding of geophysics as a whole.
