What You’ll Learn
Our students may find themselves exploring for oil or predicting natural hazards or working with engineers to build a new highway. All of this is built on a fundamental understanding of how the Earth works, and how humans interact with it.
A minor in geology gives students skills they can apply in a variety of fields from geochemistry to paleontology to archaeology.
Studying Geology Opened the World
"Studying geology at Brockport was a wonderful experience. I will always remember unearthing an Allosaurus tooth while on my internship in Wyoming, and flying across the country to present my senior research project at the Geological Society of America in Vancouver, British Colombia."Ben Seiderman '15
