The Environmental Geochemistry program of Colorado School of Mines is intended to provide: (1) an opportunity for Mines undergraduates to obtain, as part of a fifth year of study, a master’s in addition to the bachelor’s degree; and (2) additional education for working professionals in the area of geochemistry as it applies to problems relating to the environment.


The Environmental Geochemistry program of Colorado School of Mines is a non-thesis master’s degree program administered by the Geochemistry program, and may be completed as part of a combined degree program by individuals already matriculated as undergraduate students at Mines, or by individuals already holding undergraduate or advanced degrees and who are interested in a graduate program that does not have the traditional research requirement. The program consists primarily of coursework in geochemistry and allied fields, with an emphasis on environmental applications. No research is required though the program does allow for independent study, professional development, internship and cooperative experience.
