We offer one geology major with two emphases and a geology minor. Want to teach geology? The Secondary Earth Science Education program, offered with the College of Education and Human Services, is the ideal pathway.
Geology courses are taught by professors who are experts in their field, and classes typically have 15 students. Faculty offer one-on-one attention to each student, and also serve as academic and research advisers and mentors.
UWO Geology is a small, tight-knit program that offers the full liberal arts experience. With the affordable cost and practical experience students gain, a Geology degree from UWO is an incredible value for aspiring geologists.
Student research opportunities abound in both the Geology major and minor. Our students receive valuable field, research and teaching experience that is unparalleled in preparing students for careers and graduate school. Weekend field trips are included in many courses, and a capstone-level field course is offered in Utah during the summer term.
