Established in 1921, the Department of Geosciences (then Geology) is part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, one of the original colleges of the University.
Our four modern BS degree programs are designed to provide the skills and knowledge required for a broad range of career paths. Regardless of specialty, you will gain a solid foundation in chemistry, physics, and math along with coursework in classic geological methods and topics.
Dedicated to academic and professional excellence, our faculty members emphasize both fundamental and interdisciplinary study. Despite their high research productivity, our faculty are committed to delivering the very finest undergraduate geoscience education in the country.
Life for our undergraduates is engaging. We offer ample opportunities for field experiences, and take great pride in our efforts to develop an active, supportive student community. One of our latest initiatives seeks to expand opportunities for international exchange programs.
