Geoscience offers non-thesis Master's degrees in both Geology and Geophysics. The course-based M.Sc. program provides B.Sc. graduates with advanced academic training.  If the student has an employer, the course-based M.Sc. program can be done in collaboration with an industrial partner and industrial capstone project. The program is suitable for both full-time and part-time mature students who may already be in the workforce with relevant work-experience, but wish to obtain an advanced degree without taking a leave of absence.   The department provides no funding for course-based M.Sc. students and for admission a  faculty member must agree to supervise the student's program.

Course-based students are allowed a maximum of 6 years to complete program requirements.
