Why study earth sciences?
As an earth sciences student, you’ll learn about our planet’s past, its present, the changes it has gone through—and what its future might be.
As an earth scientist, you can dig into earth’s mysteries, researching how we got where we are. Find hidden pockets of petroleum, gold, and oil to propel our current economy. Or spend your career searching for ways to save the planet.
You’ll also have plenty of career opportunities. Earth scientists are needed across the country, in rural and urban areas, working inside and out in the field. Where and how you work is up to you.
