Overview

Our Geology degree programs employ a learner-centered, teacher-scholar model—which means you’ll be participating in off-campus field trips as part of undergraduate and faculty research. You’ll get rock solid foundation in the fundamentals of the subdisciplines of geology including paleontology, geomorphology, and geochemistry. The critical-thinking skills you develop at Texas Christian University will empower you to search for solutions to current and future issues on energy, water, food and climate.

Many of our Geology graduates go on to work in environmental firms, oil and gas companies, consulting firms, schools, and government agencies. Others have earned advanced degrees in geology at universities such as Duke, MIT and Colorado School of Mines.
