About

As a Geology major at Westminster College Salt Lake City, you’ll spend almost as much time in the field as you do in the classroom. You’ll explore some of the most spectacular geological landscapes in the country and use them as your guide as you learn how the Earth works.

Overview

The Geology program from Westminster College Salt Lake City  is designed for students who are naturally curious about their surroundings. As you study geology, you will develop your knowledge and interpretive skills until you are able to see the Earth’s present landscape as evidence of its dynamic past.

Key Benefits

  • Westminster has the only liberal arts geology program set among the amazing landscapes of Utah’s deserts and mountains.
  • Frequent field study opportunities allow you to use the Earth itself to guide you in hands-on learning.
  • Exploration is at the heart of the geology program. As a student, you’ll have opportunities to develop your own questions and find your own answers. This exploration happens through field-based classes, summer field experiences, and undergraduate research opportunities.  Many of our students have presented the results of their research at regional and national conferences.
