Although our degree program is still very young we are growing by leaps and bounds. At last count we were 100 majors strong and growing.
We strive to provide an all-around education with an emphasis on the application of geoscience in the field. Our courses provide practical knowledge in the classics such as structural geology, mineralogy petrology, and sedimentology and stratigraphy, as well as the less traditional areas of hydrology, geochemistry, geophysics and volcanology. We also prefer that our majors gain real world experience and as such we provide ample opportunities for undergraduate research.
There is a real need for geoscientists in the workforce today, particularly here in oil-rich Texas. Great paying and fun jobs are just a few short years away.
Mario Mata has been selected to receive a Subaru Minority Scholarship Award, representing the South-Central Section of the Geological Society of America (GSA). He will be recognized at the Student Awards Ceremony to be held at the GSA 2013 Annual Meeting in Denver, Co. Congratulations Mario!
Every Spring we honor our best and brightest students from each class standing as well as an outside community member who has been particularly supportive of the geoscience faculty and students.
