Thank you for your interest in the Department of Geological Sciences. We are glad you are here and hope you will become part of our community.


We are proud to have a large and succesful group of alumni from our undergraduate and graduate programs. Please take a look at our alumni page for alumni resources and updates on alumni events.


Geoscientists tackle some of society’s most challenging problems. They are scientific detectives who look for clues about the past and future of the earth and other planets, help us better understand economical and sustainable uses of our natural resources, inform the design of safe buildings based on earth processes such as earthquakes and floods, and much more! Make a difference today and help us educate the next generation of leaders in geological science and industry by contributing to our funding initiatives for education and research.
