Geologists study the history, materials, processes and products of the Earth. Some pursue solely academic interests such as how mountains form and erode while others are interested in practical applications, exploring fossil fuels and minerals or planning construction sites and disposal locations. A geologist studies environmental impact.


The Department of Geosciences offers bachelor of science, bachelor of arts, master of science and doctoral degrees with specialization in geology, geophysics and environmental science.

TU’s curriculum provides a sound foundation in the basic sciences while engaging in energy-related fields of exploration, environment and resources. The bachelor of science degree in geosciences with a geology option prepares students for careers in the study of Earth’s physical characteristics including composition and structure. The environmental science option is designed for students who intend to work as geoscientists at organizations, corporations and government entities.

The bachelor of science degree in geophysics applies the fundamentals of physics to the study of the Earth’s material and organic systems. The interdisciplinary bachelor of science in Biogeosciences degree program attracts students interested in a combined curriculum from the Departments of Biological Science and Geosciences.
