Our department dates back to the University’s formative years. UA’s first geology program was established in 1847, and the department has historically provided a focus for the mapping and development of the geological and hydrological resources of the state of Alabama.

As The University of Alabama grew and established itself as a major research university, the Department of Geological Sciences also expanded its research activities, which now span the entire range of geological science and cover all corners of the globe.
