Geoscience

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Geoscience

Earning your ASU geoscience degree will open doors for you into a variety of career fields, including geology, the oil and gas industry, environmental agencies, water resource management and planetary science.

Our graduates also have a 100% acceptance rate to graduate school for geosciences.

Program Faculty

Our faculty are dedicated to teaching, field studies and research. You can collaborate with them on research projects, and our small class sizes mean you get the individual attention you deserve.

Career Opportunities

Start your career as soon as you graduate. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment in many geoscience fields is expected to increase at a faster than average rate through 2028.

Particular areas of job growth include geologists, hydrologists, environmental and conservation scientists, and atmospheric scientists.
