The Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, a division of the School of the Earth, Ocean, and Environment, consists of highly regarded academic and research programs in a diverse range of related disciplines. Among these are: coastal processes, environmental geosciences, geochemistry, geophysics, global climate change, hydrocarbon exploration, oceanography, paleoceanography, paleoclimatology, petrology, remote sensing, sedimentology, seismology, structural geology, and tectonics. We offer B.S. degrees in Geological Sciences and Geophysics with opportunities to concentrate in many of the disciplines listed above. Our Master of Science degree in Geology has been offered for over 50 years and our Ph.D. program celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008. Both the M.S. and Ph.D. programs are the only such degrees offered in Geological Sciences in the State of South Carolina and each is recognized for being among the best programs in the southeast.
