Program Description:
Geology is the scientific study of the earth. This endeavor includes Earth’s composition, history, surface processes and internal workings. A degree in geology will provide the graduate the skills to discover, recognize and use the earth’s natural resources to promote the quality of human life. Because the geologist will be aware of the events that continually shape the earth’s surface, the geology graduate will provide to society the knowledge to enable all of us to occupy this planet’s physical environment more safely.
