UVM geology majors are mentored in capstone research projects or internships by faculty engaged in active research programs outdoors and in the lab. We cultivate citizens who think and work on a global scale.
Geology majors acquire a variety of skills in field and laboratory-based data collection, analysis and scientific communication. These skills, embedded throughout the Geology curriculum, enable them to succeed in a wide range of careers throughout government, industry and consulting, or they continue on in graduate studies to become professional scientists. Through individual academic advising by geology faculty, majors are guided into diverse elective offerings best suited for their career interests.
