DescriptionGeology is the study of the Earth, its elements and the circumstances that affect it. Geologists seek to understand the Earth and its physical, chemical and biological evolution. Geologists can choose from an incredibly diverse range of careers, including mineral and hydrocarbon exploration, engineering and environmental consulting, volcanology, seismology and other geologic, process-based research. They often divide their time among work in the field, the lab, and the office.

This valuable degree offers students state-of-the-art laboratories and world-renowned professors. Students can graduate with a geology major or honours, or with a double major or honours with either geography or business studies.
