The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Earth and Ocean Science is designed to serve as a primary major for students who are seeking a future career in the earth sciences. This includes academia, industry, government laboratories, research institutes, NGOs, and K-12 Education. The B.S. curriculum thoroughly prepares students for graduate work in the earth sciences, including but not limited to fields such as geology, physical oceanography, climatology, hydrology, and environmental sciences.
Students who don’t go on to graduate school may also pursue careers in these areas:
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Duke University will meet full demonstrated financial need for a limited number of international students. Each year Duke expects to enroll 20-25 first-year foreign citizens who receive need-based financial aid and/or merit-based scholarships. There is no need-based aid for international transfer applicants.
