Undergraduate Studies

   Geologists must have a broadly based education. The first two years

focus on the fundamentals of several disciplines in preparation for

more intensive advanced geology courses in the junior and senior years.

 

 

Graduate Studies

   Most students continue their education through the master of science

degree because starting salaries are higher, advancement is more rapid,

and it provides a competitive advantage in seeking employment. The

majority of geologists work for environmental or petroleum companies.

Other employers include mining companies, geological surveys, marine

institutes, highway departments, universities, and a variety of governmental

agencies (water resources, conservation, park services, etc.).
