About Our Geosciences Program

Degree programs in geosciences offer a broad education in the sciences with special depth in geology and geography.  Students in our program work with nationally and internationally known faculty and state-of the-art equipment in our teaching and research labs.

Graduates of our department have a skill-based education with the flexibility to meet changing career demands.  Our majors learn relevant skills both in the classroom and via hands-on research with faculty mentors.  More broadly, our majors gain a firm understanding of the role of science in society and are able to make informed decisions about geology- and geography-related issues that impact the future.
