Do the processes of the earth’s formation fascinate you? Would you like to work for a natural resource company, exploring for valuable mineral resources and analyzing their quantity and quality? Would you like to do seismic surveys for power plants, buildings, or highways? Would a career in geology teaching or research in schools, colleges, and private or national laboratories inspire you? If your answer to any of these questions is “yes,” and if you have a strong aptitude for mathematics, chemistry, and/or earth sciences, you should consider a major in geology.
