Geology Overview

The Department of Geology offers an up-to-date curriculum designed to train students to be employable Earth and environmental scientists. Most courses include both lecture and laboratory environments, where students have hands-on access to geological materials and state-of-the-art analytical tools to study them. Opportunities for practical field experience exist throughout the curriculum, from 200-level to 400-level, and required coursework is capped by electives in specialized topics and a recommended four-week-long summertime field course.
