Prospective Undergraduate Students

The Geology Department offers a broad curriculum that prepares students for more advanced graduate study in the geosciences and for employment immediately after graduation. Most of our students go on to graduate school or directly enter careers in environmental, mining, and petroleum. Our undergraduate program is hands-on, with opportunities for field work and undergraduate research. For many students, the highlight of their undergraduate experience is the department's six-week summer field school based in Canon City, Colorado. Click on the above Undergraduate Students link above for information about our current program or to learn more and contact an advisor.
