Students in Stockton University’s Geology program have the ability to explore the traditional disciplines of the geosciences while engaging in interdisciplinary subjects such as geophysics, geomorphology, environmental geology, coastal processes, hydrology, and soils as part of their elective courses. 

Overview

Program Features

The Stockton University’s Geology program curriculum stresses field experience, independent study projects, and internships. A key aspect of all geology classes is the engagement of students with the world around them through field work. There is no better laboratory for the geosciences than the outdoors! These encourage students to develop initiative and professionalism while they provide practical experience and enhance the students’ understanding of local geology, the region and the world.

Students may earn either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Both degree options are based around a curriculum that provides students with a solid foundation in the traditional sub-disciplines of geology. These include courses in mineralogy, petrology, field methods, structural geology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy.
