About

Geologists study the materials that make up the earth, the features and structures found on Earth as well as the processes by which these features and structures formed. Our department has a wide range of expertise in geological sciences, including field-based studies. The Geological Sciences program is offered at The University of British Columbia.

Overview

The Geological Sciences program offered at The University of British Columbia in EOAS is consistently ranked as one of the best geological science programs in Canada, and in the top 20 internationally.

Features
