What can I do with a degree in geology or geography?Basilosaurus Excavation

An undergraduate degree in geology or geography prepares students for work in these fields. The Department’s senior thesis requirement for the B.S. degrees prepares students to conduct research, a skill sought by graduate schools and employers. About 50 percent of geology and geography graduates pursue advanced study. Others may go into careers such as:

  • teaching
  • mining-exploration
  • environmental consulting
  • government agency work
