Working on both degrees at once saves time and expense, allowing you to meet your academic and professional goals sooner than in a traditional course of study. 

Flexible Program, Accommodating Students’ Individual Goals

All accelerated Master's programs in the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences offer a thesis, report, and coursework option. These programs are designed for highly motivated students from any discipline who plan to pursue a career or a PhD in geology, geophysics, or geological engineering.
