Geophysics Specialist

The Geophysics specialist program allows students to model physical processes in and on Earth and other planets and to apply non­invasive methods of imaging the subsurface, often in 4D (i.e., space and time); targets may range from archaeological investigations to groundwater imaging and mineral exploration, and also include modeling of mountain-­building processes and the exploration of planetary surfaces. This program provides the knowledge requirements for professional registration with APGO, or leads into graduate programs in Physics, Earth Science, or Planetary Science. Students are advised to be aware of course prerequisites. For further questions, please consult with the Undergraduate Administrator, Scott Moore.
