Graduate students are required to complete their course work within two years. For the PhD, a minimum of three full courses are required. A full course represents two oneterm courses (half courses). Additional courses beyond the minimum, including electives from Physics or other departments, may be taken if appropriate for the course of study. Courses should be selected after consultation with the supervisor. Students who choose Option I must complete three full courses in their first year. Students who choose Option II must complete two full courses in their first year, followed by one full course in the second year.
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:
