The undergraduate program in geosciences is designed to help students attain greater understanding of past and present Earth processes. Geoscientists study the minerals, rocks, fluids, and fossils of the Earth and investigate the physical, chemical, and biological processes occurring on and in the Earth. Students also will have the opportunity to study outdoors and conduct hands-on research during field camp. 

Our graduate program provides a challenging curriculum that is relevant to today’s career prospects and the opportunity to study with internationally renowned faculty members. Students will benefit from strong research programs, a high-tech infrastructure, and a full program of convenient evening academic courses. Our graduate program prepares students for employment in the energy and environmental sectors, geospatial technologies, and mining professions in industry, government or academia.

The Graduate Certificate in Remote Sensing  offers focused training in remote sensing and prepares you for employment in geospatial technology firms. It is offered as a non-degree seeking option by the Department of Geosciences and the School of Social Sciences.
