Our mission is to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the highest quality earth science education. We take great pride in a strong tradition of undergraduate geology, with many opportunities for field-based study and independent research. Our commitment to undergraduate education is reflected in our highly rated undergraduate research program. Our MS and PhD programs offer opportunities for research in a wide range of fields, from solid-earth geology and tectonics, to Quaternary and climate studies, lacustrine geochemistry, basin modeling, economic geology, and planetary geology. Recent additions to our expanding faculty reflect a strong commitment to teaching and research in the most vital areas of earth science today.
