Why Study Geology at UND?
Cutting-edge facilities and extensive hands-on experiences, including a five-week field camp, are hallmarks of UND's Geology program. By the time you graduate, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of geology, skills in modern geological techniques and instrumentation, and the ability to seek, analyze and present new information — all critical skills to find entry-level work.
Our faculty interests span the globe, and you may have the opportunity to follow them as you participate in joint research; projects in Antarctica as well as other remote locations are ongoing.
A senior thesis is required.
