Program Information

School:Brock University
Faculty:Faculty of Mathematics and Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Geology/Earth Science, General
Description:The Earth Sciences program trains geoscientists who study the Earth and other planets in order to better understand their origin and history. We know the Earth’s history reasonably well, and that knowledge has helped us to discover natural resources such as oil and gas, economic minerals and metals, and to understand phenomena such as global climate change and volcano and earthquake hazards. The geological knowledge derived from the Earth also helps us to understand other solar system bodies.

Brock’s program is designed to comply with the educational requirements for initial registration as a geoscientist-in-training, the licensing classification that leads to the PGeo designation established by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario.
