The discovery of crude oil in commercial quantities in Ghana could not have come at a better time when the University is renewing its commitment to national relevance and academic excellence. Recognising the potential of this oil discovery to the economy of the nation, the Department of Geology in collaboration with the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), has designed a full fee-paying MSc programme in Petroleum Geoscience. The MSc programme is a full-time one-year taught course that includes a dissertation.

The objective of the programme is to provide advanced training in the field of Petroleum Geoscience. This objective is achieved through lectures, tutorials, hands-on exercises, laboratory practicals, seminars, field exercises, excursions and the preparation of a dissertation. The course is career–orientated and is recommended to professional earth and natural scientists who wish to either establish or consolidate a career in the petroleum geosciences. The broad-based approach also allows graduates to pursue their career options, and that includes consulting, research and personal development through pursuance of higher studies. The programme assumes that the student has a good first degree in the earth sciences or related discipline.
