The B.S. degree in geology is intended primarily to prepare students for graduate study in the geological sciences. As a terminal degree, it is useful in a variety of careers, including environmental technology, mineral and energy resource exploration, science writing, and business. Geoscientists will apply their knowledge and skills to exploring and developing the earth's resources.
