A master's of science is a required to apply as a Ph.D. student. PhD students (64 hours) are expected to pass Preliminary Exams in their fourth semester and obtain the doctorate within 2-4 additional years, depending on their research design. Total time to degree for PhD students is between 8 and 10 semesters of full-time study. Ph.D. graduates are competitive for entry-level, tenure-track appointments in doctoral-granting universities or for careers in research, public service, private industry, and other opportunities open to geographers.
