Study the earth, the materials of which it is made, their structure and the processes acting upon them
  • Geologists study the earth – its history, its composition and processes, as well as potential hazards such as earthquakes, volcanos, landslides and climate change.
  • With a geology degree, you can find a job in energy, mining, environmental consulting, government research and regulation. And, you’ll likely find yourself spending part of your workday outdoors – in swamps, mountains, forests, desert plains and out at sea.

There is a great atmosphere among our students, thanks to:

  • Field trips – several geology classes incorporate local excursions, as well as summer field camps in Oklahoma and New Mexico.
  • Student comradery – small classes and an active student-professional organization help create life-long relationships.
  • Opportunities outside of class – you can participate in undergrad research and our Engineering without Borders projects abroad.
