The Bachelor Geology at Middlebury College takes advantage of our natural setting by stressing field-oriented and laboratory-supported inquiry into problems in all facets of earth science. Since Vermont is a classic area for the study of mountain system evolution, one general theme of the program is to relate geological process to the origin and evolution of global tectonic patterns, integrating data from the world's oceans and continental areas.
Teaching is our passion and research is an integral part of that teaching. Our research interests include ocean studies, lake studies, soil studies, structural geology, metamorphic and igneous petrology, geochemistry, and geomorphology. All of our research has a field and a lab component.
Geology majors have used their Middlebury degree as a stepping-stone to graduate school in the geosciences; to industry; to teaching careers; and to careers in environmental science, business, law, and architecture.
Geology majors should graduate with knowledge of fundamental theories and content in geology, including topics from across the spectrum of geologic time pertaining to both bedrock geology and surficial geology.
Geology majors will be able to critically assess and analyze data, write effectively as scientists, possess excellent oral presentation skills, and be well-versed in field-based skills and instrumental analysis in the geosciences.
