The geology program at SUU revolves around student-led research, whether as part of a class project or a senior thesis. Our research is often multi-disciplinary, within the geology program and within the Department of Physical Science. This distinctive opportunity leads to the success of many of our students with graduate school preparation.
The geology program here at SUU is located in one of the best geologic locations on the planet. Our students get a chance to work on research and class projects in a world-class setting. Experiencing these amazing geologic features up close puts our graduates at an advantage over most in the world.
Our small class sizes allow us to build personal relationships with geology majors. We design learning environments tailored for the individuals in our program through project-based experiences in the field and in the lab. Students use those experiences to connect classroom concepts to the real world.
