The Geophysical Sciences Program is an interdepartmental degree program at the University of Colorado that offers students flexibility to choose courses that meet their scholarly interests. Students may conduct research at participating departments or at research institutes and centers under the Graduate School. In addition, graduate students enjoy a lifestyle unique to residents of Boulder.

Background. The Geophysics Ph. D. Program was approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education in 1973 as an interdepartmental degree program under the Graduate School of the University of Colorado at Boulder. The initial emphasis of the program was on Solid-earth Geophysics. In January 1993, the Graduate School approved the addition of an option in Hydrologic Sciences under the program, as the graduate-level course requirements for the two subfields of geophysics are different.
