Choosing where to pursue your graduate degree is one of the most important career decisions you will make. Where you end up will lay the foundation for your future. The Department of Geoscience’s graduate program offers a tailored graduate experience with coursework and research options to accommodate students with varied interests and professional goals.
Our graduate program is an important and integrated part of UMKC, and our students are offered many opportunities to engage with the greater UMKC community through organizations affiliated with the School of Graduate Studies.
The graduate student population of the Department of Geosciences is small, which enables each student to have a personalized, research intensive experience.
The UMKC Department of Geosciences currently offers a Master of Science in Environmental and Urban Geosciences and an Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in conjunction with the UMKC School of Graduate Studies.
We are proud of our tradition of excellence in research and many of our former students have gone on to highly successful careers in a myriad of fields. The department also supports national and international collaborations, as well as partnerships with other programs within the university.
Once you explore our Graduate Admissions requirements, we invite you to visit campus and meet with the department.
