¿Qué aprenderé?

Virginia Tech's Department of Geosciences focuses on research, education and outreach dealing with the nature of the earth. We offer the MS and PhD degree programs at the Blacksburg campus. Our students and faculty investigate earth processes at scales that range from atomic to planetary. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches to research in the geosciences, both within the department and through interdepartmental programs.

Ph.D. students must pass a minimum of 90 credit hours, at least 30 of which must be taken as coursework, and at least 30 must be research credits. The department does not give a standardized qualifying exam, but Ph.D. students must take a preliminary exam. The Ph.D. advisory committee shall have responsibility for the make-up and administration of the exam. The exam shall include both an oral and a written portion. Regulations that apply for the exam are: (1) the examination must be taken at least six months before the thesis/dissertation defense, and (2) at least 24 hours of coursework and/or research must remain to be taken at the time of the examination, including work for which the student is currently enrolled. It is recommended that the student meet with his/her advisory committee prior to preparing the exam to discuss the nature of the exam and the evaluation process. The final exam for the Ph.D. degree is a defense of the dissertation.
