At Binghamton University the Geological Sciences span the sciences to understand and solve some of the most important problems on earth.


The Binghamton University Department of Geological Sciences offers both BS and BA degrees in geology, a number of minors and combined, five-year programs leading to the MAT degree in earth science education.

The BS is designed to satisfy the entrance requirements and expectations of the top graduate schools in the country. The BS is also the appropriate choice for a student seeking immediate employment as a geologist.

The BA in geological sciences is designed to be more flexible. It provides a good liberal arts education in the physical sciences. It is often combined with other interests, such as science journalism or political science.
