Geophysics (Geoscience)

Postby srijal » Mon Sep 27, 2010 5:19 pm

I have a BS degree in physics (like most of you) and I wanna go to geophysics/geoscience program. I didn't take any earth science classes, but i have astrophysics (not quite relevant) course under my belt. I am not sure if my background will let me excel in geophysics/geoscience. Any help on where to apply and how to apply will be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks a bunch

You'll do fine, but you will have to take some undergrad courses. You might consider New Mexico Tech, which recently got into the top 20 US small schools. Lots of mountains and geophysical study objects nearby, cheap cost of living, nice sunshine, clean air (except when it blows dust). Their geophysics program is here:
