GEOL Careers

Career opportunities for geology graduates abound in understanding geologic hazards and in exploring for and efficiently using land, water, energy, and mineral resources. These careers require knowledge of the geological, biological, chemical, and physical processes above, on, and below the earth's surface. Our teaching and research emphasize how these processes operate through time to shape our planet's surface and near surface environment.
