Rock your world.
Think geologists only study rocks? Think again. Today's geoscientists utilize a variety of tools and disciplines in their quest to understand scientific issues like the formation and changes of our planet, the effects of shrinking glaciers on the oceans and climate, alternative energy sources, and much more.
As a student in this program, you will explore the geological processes of the earth, the effect of erosion and deposition, and the formation and uses of rocks and minerals. You will also learn methods for locating, preserving and protecting natural resources like groundwater, metals and petroleum.
Students in this program can focus their studies on general geology, hydrology, environmental geology, resource exploration, structural geology and tectonics, or geological education.
