Specialization in Geophysics [Science]


Continuation in the Specialization in Geophysics program requires successful completion of at least ★24 with a minimum 2.3 GPA in the previous Fall/Winter. In addition, graduation requires a minimum 2.3 GPA on the last ★90 credited to the degree.

Notes

  1. In addition to the specific courses listed in the program, students must take a minimum of ★3 from specialization Pool B, ★6 from specialization Pools A or B, ★15 in approved Science options and ★12 in Arts options.
  2. Specialization Pool A courses: ASTRO 429 ; EAS 221 , EAS 320 , EAS 323 , EAS 324 , EAS 425 ; GEOPH 332 , GEOPH 421 , GEOPH 431 , GEOPH 440 ; MIN E 323 ; PET E 365 , PET E 473, PET E 477 ; PHYS 308 , PHYS 499 . Students in Geophysics will not have the formal prerequisites for many of the EAS, MIN E, and PET E courses, and must request permission to register in those courses from the department offering the particular course. GEOPH courses are recommended.
  3. Specialization Pool B courses: EAS 224 , PHYS 261 , PHYS 310  (recommended), PHYS 362 , PHYS 420 , PHYS 467 , STAT 141  (or STAT 151 ),
  4. Not all 300-level and 400-level courses are offered every year. Students must consult the Department of Physics for approval of programs.
  5. Students entering this program after first year may take GEOPH 210  in lieu of GEOPH 110 . However, students will not receive credit for both GEOPH 110  and GEOPH 210 .
  6. Credit in SCI 100 will be considered equivalent to CHEM 101 , CHEM 102 , EAS 105 , MATH 114 , MATH 115 , PHYS 144  and PHYS 146 .
  7. Credit in SCI 151  will be consideredequivalent to STAT 151  and ★3 Science option.

Year 4


Science Internship Program


A Science Internship Program, is offered to students in the General, Specialization or Honors programs in Physics (see Science Internship Program  for guidelines to the program). The Science Internship designation will appear on the degree parchments of students who have participated in the program and who have also successfully completed PHYS 400 .
