Geoscientists Impact Our World
Geoscientists are problem solvers, addressing issues related to energy & water resources, natural disasters, and environmental protection. Knowledge of geoscience, the scientific study of Earth's dynamic processes and history, will be key to achieving sustainability in the 21st century.
As a geoscientist, you can work as an environmental scientist, hydrologist, engineering geologist, computer cartographer/GIS analyst, or even a planetary geologist studying planets and moons to understand the origin of our solar system.
You Will Like the Geosciences If...♦ You enjoy learning about minerals, rocks, fossils, earthquakes, & volcanoes
Can You Picture Yourself Here?
We have several degrees designed to help you make that happen.
Cleaning up the environment, exploring for natural resources and helping communities prepare for and lessen the impact of geologic hazards, there are many careers that will allow you to help make the world a better place today, and for generations to come.
We Can Help You Make it Happen!
