The study of geoscience provides strong preparation for a variety of careers in government, industry and education. Our students work in natural resource management, environmental law, secondary education, science journalism, and research. Geoscience alums occupy fields as traditional as exploration geology for major petroleum companies to fields as far removed from geoscience as finance and marketing. Most Geoscience alumni/ae follow careers in one of four broad categories: (1) education, (2) environmental consulting, (3) scientific research or related fields, and (4) non-scientific careers. The chart below identifies major career paths for our graduates since 1975.
