What qualifications do you need to study geophysics?

The qualifications required to study geophysics can vary depending on the specific program and level of education. Generally, to study geophysics at the undergraduate level, a high school diploma or equivalent is required and a strong background in mathematics and physics is recommended.

For graduate level studies, a bachelor’s degree in geophysics, physics, mathematics or a related field is typically required. Some graduate programs may also require standardized test scores such as the GRE, and some programs may also require prior coursework in specific subjects such as geology, computer science, and statistics.

It is always good to check the specific requirements of the program you are interested in before applying.
