Geologists study the history, composition, and physical aspects of our planet. The entire world will be your laboratory, as geology is the most outdoor-oriented discipline of the basic sciences. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur in class, during tutorials and in laboratories. You may also gain hands-on experience conducting research at field schools within both Canada and the United States.

Geologists have global career opportunities in areas such as the oil and gas industry, engineering firms, a curator, the research sector, and more. A degree in geology can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
