The Graduate Certificate in Petroleum Geoscience is an interdisciplinary program in the Department of Business and management studies designed to enhance both critical thinking and the technical skills that serve as the scientific foundation for practicing petroleum geo-science. The program requires a minimum of 18 semester credit hours from Geology and Geophysics and optionally Petroleum Engineering as part of a regular certificate program. In addition, workshops, lectures and field trips enable students to learn about pressing scientific problems in petroleum exploration and production. Students are required to take a core of courses including reflection seismology and seismic interpretation, sequence stratigraphy and basin analysis, 3-D structure and rock properties. In addition, students must choose at least one course from an approved list of supporting courses in Petroleum Engineering.
