Some minimum requirements for MS students in structural geology

People who have earned their Bachelor's degree in a field of geoscience at Baylor are very, very strongly encouraged to pursue your interests in graduate education at another university. It's not that we don't love you or think you are qualified -- it's just that you will probably learn more and be a better-rounded geoscientist if you go somewhere else, see some new geology, and learn from different professors who have different experiences and knowledge. See Dr. Cronin for information about other suitable graduate programs.
