Geology is the study of the planet Earth and the processes that shape it through time. Geologists work and study in the lab and in the field - the natural world is their classroom. Exciting and relevant areas of research and study in the field of geology include, but are not limited to:

  • Plate Tectonics
  • Global Climate Change Remote Sensing
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Energy Resources
  • Mineralogy and Petrology
  • Paleobiology
  • Geochemistry
