About the Department
The University of Idaho's Geology Department consists of 10 active faculty, support personnel, and most importantly about 100 enthusiastic and talented undergraduate and graduate students.
Because of the university's size, location in the Rocky Mountain west, and opportunities to work personally with internationally recognized faculty, our students are getting private-college service at the state's flagship institution.
Our graduates have excellent employment opportunities in environmental geology, water resources, earth science education, minerals exploration, and the petroleum industry.
