To the MSc program, we accept students with Bachelor`s degree in physics or geology. Students with BSc in physics are required to demonstrate sufficient skills in geology (by obtaining a minor in geology or by demonstrating comparable skills), and students with BSc in geology are required to demonstrate sufficient skills in physics (by obtaining a minor in physics or by demonstrating comparable skills). Students with geoscience, engineering and other backgrounds may also be eligible to enter the program; the decisions are made on case-by-case basis.
