Program overview

Geologists and geophysicists are in high demand in the U.S. and across the world. Some of their responsibilities include understanding the formation, structure and evolution of the earth, as well as other planets; exploring for oil, gas, minerals and other natural resources; predicting natural hazards, and protecting our environment. For over a century, the geology and geophysics program at Missouri S&T has been providing our students with comprehensive educational experiences at the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. levels. As you will find on this site, we have a dynamic program and our students benefit greatly from active participation in numerous research projects throughout the world.
