At Oberlin College & Conservatory, Geology students explore fundamental questions of earth and planetary science while applying a range of methods to address pressing contemporary questions such as climate change, natural resource development, environmental restoration and their relationships to social justice.


Through a blend of laboratory, computational, and field research, our students build a deep understanding of the Earth and develop skills they can apply in a variety of careers including education, government, and environmental consulting.

Community in the Laboratory and in the Field

  • Oberlin College & Conservatory’s Geology department is a welcoming family of curious minds from diverse backgrounds. In addition to coursework, geology students have the chance to do original research with a faculty mentor in one of our many laboratories and to travel to sites as varied as Lake Erie to China, Cuba, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 
  • Regardless of whether we are doing geology in the classroom, in a laboratory, or in the field, our department prides itself on an ethos of friendship, support, and inclusion.
