Introduction

The Roy M. Huffington Department of Earth Sciences in Dedman College at SMU has an internationally distinguished faculty active in both field and laboratory-based studies. They are joined by a dynamic group of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who benefit both from the Department's excellent laboratory and computational facilities as well as from the individual attention possible in a private university with a low student-to-faculty ratio.

Our location in Dallas offers all of the cultural benefits of a major metropolis at a much lower cost of living and with less congestion than in most cities of comparable size. The city’s mild climate allows for outdoor activities year-round.

Earth Sciences was one of the University’s first Ph.D. granting departments. SMU grants graduate degrees in geology, geophysics, and applied geophysics.

Ph.D. program in Geology or Geophysics

The Ph.D. degree required a minimum of two academic years of residency as a graduate student on campus or at a research facility approved by the Department faculty; satisfactory defense of two original research propositions; and the preparation and public defense of a dissertation that is a significant original contribution to the advancement of science. Proficiency in a foreign language may be required by the advisory committee.
