About the Program
- Take advantage of our wide-ranging degree program that covers everything from structural geology, mineralogy, meteorology and stratigraphy - to hydrology, geochemistry, geophysics and volcanology.
- Join our student organizations for networking and professional development. You can also participate in geology outreach and attend national conferences.
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.
You can also minor in Geoscience, Geography or Physical Science.
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.
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.
