The information below is meant to assist current and prospective Biogeochemistry scholars and faculty navigate the dual-title degree requirements. For more detailed information or questions, please contact the Director or Program Assistant Angela Packer.

Admission to the Biogeochemistry Dual-Title Degree Program

Once a student has been accepted to a major program of study, application to the dual-title degree program can occur immediately or at a later time, such as upon matriculation. The application to the dual-title degree program should be completed before scheduling the candidacy examination in the major program.

Students applying to the program must submit a short essay describing their interest in biogeochemistry research. The application should be reviewed and signed by the advisor and ideally, by the student's Biogeochemisty co-advisor (see below under Degree Requirements). In certain cases, applications may be approved without a co-advisor's signature. However, students are encouraged to seek out a co-advisor early, and the co-advisor should be identified by the time of the candidacy exam.
