Come study geology in the land of Mount St. Helens, the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and the mighty Pacific Ocean!
The study of geology can take you from mountaintops to the bottom of the ocean, from the study of cataclysmic supervolcano eruptions to the slow creep of tectonic plates, from millions of years in the past to forecasting the planet’s future. Whether you’re interested in mineral resources, earthquake hazards or geochemistry, the landscape can be your laboratory. Our geology option in the undergraduate earth sciences major focuses on the Earth as an integrated system, and includes an emphasis on experiential learning. We can’t wait to welcome you!
A vibrant job market in geology reflects society's environmental concerns, needs for hazard mitigation, and world demand for resources including water, gas, oil and metals. Learn more about geology careers: Why Geology?
