Graduate Program

Graduate Studies in the Department of Geological Sciences (GS) involve academic course work and independent research. Students are prepared for careers as professional scientists in research, education, or the application of the earth sciences to mineral, energy, and water resources. Programs lead to the M.S., Engineer, and Ph.D. degrees.

Undergraduate Program

The purpose of the undergraduate program in Geological Sciences is to provide students with (1) a broad background in the fundamentals of the Earth sciences and (2) the quantitative, analytical, and communications skills necessary to conduct research and think critically about questions involving the Earth.

Research Facilities

Our researchers have access to a wide variety of laboratories and equipment, either within our department or in associated departments.


The award is presented by the Paleontological Society each year to a scientist under 40 whose early work reflects excellence and promise in the science of paleontology.
