The Professional Science Master's (Pro-M.S.) degree program within the Geology and Planetary Science (G&PS) Department officially began in the Fall of 2002 with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Unlike a traditional thesis/research based M.S. degree, this program is unique in the physical sciences, drawn more from the paradigm of an M.B.A.. The unique curriculum provides direct training on the latest GIS/RS software and equipment, while preparing students for careers in the geospatial sciences and management in such diverse fields as consulting, environmental non-profit organizations, research management, government agencies, technology applications, and others.
