Geology

The geology option is designed for students who wish to apply the principles of field geology to the study of the Earth. This background can be used in a variety of careers, including exploration for and development of Earth's mineral and energy resources; environmental and engineering applications related to land use and development; and research into ground and surface-water hydrology, surficial processes and natural hazards, and climatic change.
