As a Geology major at Macalester College, you’ll learn about the interconnectedness of the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere; you’ll study the evolution of life on this planet over millions of years; you’ll ponder how processes deep inside the planet impact the Earth’s surface and climate; and you’ll consider how, in the age of humans and climate change, the world might evolve next.
A Geology degree will teach you:
- How the natural world around you has evolved, and continues to evolve, over time
- How study of the past can inform our understanding of climate change today
- How coveted natural resources are formed, distributed, and depleted, from the water you drink to the metals in your cell phone
- How life on our planet has evolved in conjunction with earth processes
