What it's all about

The geophysics program enables students to be stewards of Earth's resources and environment. Students are provided with the fundamental skills in solid earth geophysics, including seismic and potential field exploration and earthquake seismology. This field combines geology, math and physics so we can better understand how the Earth works.

You might take classes such as:

  • Physical Geology
  • Geophysics
  • Earth Materials
  • Advanced Seismic Interpretation
  • Geophysical Exploration

Graduates of this major go on to:

  • go to graduate school
  • teach
  • work in museums
  • jobs in a government agency or the oil and gas industry
