Students in this Geology – Geophysics major at Colorado State University are well prepared both for employment opportunities in a wide variety of geosciences and geotechnical fields, and for graduate education in geophysics, seismology, geodynamics, energy exploration, environmental geophysics, space sciences, and resource science and management.
Many opportunities exist for geology graduates in the private and public sectors within a wide range of societally important and satisfying careers.
Environmental management, energy resources, water resource and management, construction services, mining, power generation, computer software, and many other industries employ geoscientists in exploration, development, production, communications, building, management, and research.
Federal agencies employ geoscientists for resource mapping and assessment, oil-gas-coal-groundwater-geothermal resource evaluation and development, resource and environmental water studies, leasing and conservation, resource restoration and rehabilitation, hazards assessment and mitigation, regulatory activities, national defense, and basic and applied research.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
