Geoscience Career Master's Preparation Survey

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and the Association of American Geographers (AAG) conducted a research study funded by the National Science Foundation (grant 1202707), surveying Geology and Geography non-PhD preparatory Master's degree programs.  The study, titled "Geoscience Career Master’s Preparation Survey" (Geo Career MaPS) sampled faculty and students from 20 different Geology and 20 different Geography departments investigating the preparation of key skills and competencies within their degree programs, and compared those to what non-academic professionals indicate as the most important for their current employment.  This Geoscience Currents highlights several important reasons why Master's students decide to enroll in geoscience programs.  Stay tuned for more Currents from this study in the coming weeks.
