Graduate Programs in Geophysics

University requirements for the M.S. and Ph.D. are described in the "Graduate Degrees" section of this bulletin. Lecture course units applied to graduate degree program requirements must be taken for a letter grade if the course is offered for letter grade.

Transfer credit—An incoming student with a relevant Master of Science degree may apply for a departmental waiver of up to 18 units of the 45 units required for the Ph.D. degree (see the "Doctor of Philosophy in Geophysics" section of this bulletin). Students without an M.S. degree may apply for waivers for individual courses taken in post-baccalaureate study at other institutions. Credit for courses generally requires that students identify an equivalent Stanford course and obtain the signature of the Stanford faculty responsible for such a course stating its equivalence.

Waiving of any course requirements or substitution of electives other than those listed below requires the written consent of the student's faculty adviser and the Geophysics graduate coordinator.
