Geology is the scientific study of the solid earth, earth processes, and how earth has changed through time. Geologists do research to develop new principles to help our understanding of the earth. These principles can often be applied to land use planning, the discovery of mineral, energy or water resources and to environmental studies.
Positions are available to geologists in most large energy companies, mineral exploration companies, engineering and environmental firms, state and national geological surveys, colleges and universities. The degree program in geology provides students with a general background in science, and a comprehensive background in the principal disciplines of geology. Fieldwork is emphasized.
