Why Study Geoscience?

Think geoscience is just rocks? Geoscientists are problem solvers, addressing issues related to energy & water resources, natural disasters, and environmental protection.



Rewarding Careers

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Geoscience jobs are expected to increase during the next decade faster than most other industries...and many geoscientists wear jeans to the "office"!



Several Degree Options

Our degrees will not only teach you what you need to be successful in the geoscience workforce and/or graduate school, they'll also help you identify the geoscience specialties that best match your career goals.
