Graduate students are required to complete their course work within two years. Students who choose Option I are required to take 3 full courses in their first year, followed by 1 full course in the second year. A full course represents two oneterm courses (half courses). Student who take Option II must complete 2 full courses in their first year, followed by another 2 full courses in the second.
A typical program of study for an Option I student in the Atmospheric Physics track is as follows:

Programs of study for students in the Geophysics track depend strongly on whether their research interests are in basic or applied geophysics. Students should consult with their research supervisor to determine the appropriate courses to take. As examples, a selection of courses for an Option I student in Basic Geophysics might be:
