We pride ourselves on being a small program in which every faculty member knows every geology major personally.
Our students are our primary focus. We have seven geology faculty members, each specializing in one of the major branches of geology. All classes and labs are taught by faculty members.
Our geology program requirements were designed with students' futures in mind. We prepare our students with the fundamental understanding of geology to succeed in graduate school, as well as the practical field experience needed to succeed as career geologists. Our course requirements were chosen to parallel the criteria on the Professional Geologist Licensing Exam.
