2021-22 Graduate Catalog


Geological Sciences

Students may pursue the Master of Science in Geology.

Prerequisites: A BA or BS from an acceptable college of university with an academic record meeting the standards of TCU.

The GRE is not required. The GRE score is part of a holistic review of each application and official documents are required if scores are submitted for inclusion with the application.

Students who have majored in an area other than geology may be admitted if undergraduate deficiencies can be removed within a reasonable amount of time. An applicant's academic record should demonstrate knowledge both of the other sciences necessary to the field of concentration and of mathematics through differential and integral calculus. If these areas are deficient, the student may be counseled to take non-credit background courses.
