from American Geosciences Institute

Recent geoscience graduates were asked to describe their greatest challenge to completing their degree. The table included highlights the most-cited challenges by students, along with the percentage of graduates that faced the challenge and example comments from students. Thirteen percent of graduates either did not respond to the question or did not feel they faced a major obstacle while working towards their degree.

The majority of graduates had trouble with specific classes. However, a few students mentioned their capstone or thesis work as challenging. Financial issues were also mentioned frequently and were coupled with other challenges, specifically related to balancing school and work and time management. Personal issues were often cited by students in relation to motivation. more
