Applied Depositional Geosystems


The Graduate Certificate in Applied Depositional Geosystems (ADG) trains both traditional (those with BS degrees in geosciences) and non‐traditional students (those with bachelor’s degrees in other science and engineering fields) for career opportunities in the energy industry, in government agencies, and in academia. Providing students with training in this field enhances their skills in geology, mathematics, and the physical sciences, forming a basis for work in petroleum and water exploration, as well as environmental geology and engineering.

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Depositional Geosystems will be awarded to students successfully completing five courses (15 hours) from the options listed on the departmental website. No substitution of courses or transfer credit is permitted.

For further information, please contact the Department of Geology & Geophysics, 225-578-3353 or geology@lsu.edu.

*** Admission to the LSU Graduate School and to the Department of Geology & Geophysics is required. For specific information on graduate school admission, please see The Graduate School  section of the catalog.***
