Our current focus areas on the Geology program at Texas Christian University, include sedimentary geology, petroleum geology, structural geology and tectonics, igneous and metamorphic petrology, Geospatial analysis, geomorphology, meteoritics and planetary geology, and paleontology.


Key facts

We expect our students to have a general interest in geology and have some knowledge of different subfields within geology that are attractive as potential research areas.

Most students from Texas Christian University, complete projects that are local with easily accessible field areas in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Mississippi. In the past, students have also worked in Scotland, southern Africa, Peru, the Baja Peninsula and the Sierra Nevada in California. 

A number of students from the Geology program are completing studies without a field component where they are conducting subsurface studies (structural and stratigraphic).


In addition, we have students working on projects in meteoritics, sequence stratigraphy, fluvial geomorphology, physical volcanology, paleontology, and carbonate petrology.
