The Geochemistry program is an interdisciplinary graduate program administered by the departments of Geology and Geological Engineering and Chemistry and Geochemistry. Students reside in either of the two departments. The Geochemistry program comprises a core group of courses and four optional tracks: Mineralogy-Petrology, Aqueous-Environmental, Ore deposits-Exploration, and Organic-Petroleum. The Geochemistry programs have been admitted to the Western Regional Graduate Program. This allows students who reside in Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming to enroll at Colorado resident tuition rates.
Colorado School of Mines is accredited through the doctoral degree by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association.
