Geology & Environmental Geosciences (GEOL)
Geology is the natural science that involves the nature and history of Earth, including scientific analysis of environmental problems. The Bucknell geology curriculum engages students with concepts and issues related to Earth and its environments through coursework, field studies and scientific research. A geology degree equips students with analytical skills, problem-solving skills, communication skills, experience in teamwork and solid grounding in field-based science. Geoscience includes diverse subdisciplines, including geologic hazards, geochemistry, geophysics, hydrogeology, tectonics and engineering geology. At an introductory level, geology coursework provides students with basic knowledge of Earth and its systems and how that knowledge can provide an understanding of potential solutions to environmental problems. Knowledge of Earth, its processes, hazards, history, resources and limitations can be an important component of a liberal arts education and can provide a foundation for advanced work in the discipline.
