Geology and Geophysics: Understanding the World Around Us
Students within the Geology and Geophysics department will have the opportunity to study a broad array of fields covered in our program. These include: how the Earth formed and changes through time, how different landscapes develop, mechanisms of mountain building and erosion, imaging the interior of the planet, the evolution of life, and how to explore and manage water and energy resources. We provide our FIG students with a head start within the course of study that fits each student’s needs, goals, and interests. If a student is interested in a career in oil and gas companies, environmental consulting, the minerals industry, academics, government or private research firms, or just wishes to have a better understanding of how the Earth works, this is the right FIG for you.
