For years before 1996, the list above was compiled from dates listed in the
      Department's on-line list of UGA Geology M.S. theses and Ph.D. dissertations.
For years after 1995, the list was compiled from the UGA Library's online catalog, which lists all theses and dissertations.

The number of assistantships funded by the University available to the Department decreased greatly during the mid-1990s.
• - years in which U.S. unemployment exceeded 7%.
⊕ - years in which price of crude oil exceeded 60 2008 US dollars.
      Note that both of the above would have a lag time between
            motivating factor for enrollment and completion of thesis.

Data for undergraduate degrees are not listed only for lack of data; data will be added as made available.
