Geologists investigate the history of the Earth, predict future geologic events, search for new sources of energy, water, and natural resources, and endeavor to protect the quality of the Earth’s environment. Earth is a complex system that has evolved over history and geologists attempt to understand the processes that drive these changes over time. Geologists commonly work on field-based research projects, many of which require very sophisticated lab analyses or high levels of computation, requiring the use of equipment such as electron microscopes, mass spectrometers, and supercomputers, among other tools.
Curriculum of the Geology program from University of Oklahoma is taught by exceptional faculty who prioritize providing hands-on learning through labs and field trips. Courses stress the fundamentals of science within a creative interdisciplinary environment with the freedom to specialize in a particular area of emphasis or take a more general approach. The School of Geosciences offers every undergraduate the opportunity to conduct independent research mentored by faculty, and has state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories available for students to use in both classes and undergraduate research.
