Program Description

Geology is the study of the processes and physical structure of the earth. As a geology student you will learn about the history of the earth, the materials we take from the earth and about the many different processes that impact our earth. This program takes a very practical approach and you will take advantage of the university's access to drill core (rock samples) and other material provided by the Subsurface Geological Laboratory. Laboratory projects commonly examine practical problems and apply techniques used by working geologists.

Sample Courses:
Environmental Geology, Internal Processes of the Earth, Mineralogy, Paleontology, Earth System History.

Career Opportunities:
Graduates pursue careers as geophysicists, marine geologists, environmental geologists, survey geologists, hydrogeologists,
oceanographers, paleontologists, soil scientists and seismologists.
