Undergraduate Careers

Careers in the geosciences appeal to those who like to travel and work outdoors.

Geology majors are typically employed in the areas of natural resources or environmental management.

Jobs with smaller domestic energy companies are relatively abundant for those holding bachelor of science degrees, although many choose to pursue their master's and eventually work for major international energy companies.

Those working in environmental geology are advised to take the Fundamentals of Geology portion of the National Association of State Boards of Geology licensing exam during their senior year. Our curriculum specifically addresses areas covered in this exam.

Steady population and economic growth put stresses on natural resources, fueling demand for geoscientists. Can you say job security?
