Geology is an interdisciplinary science. Geologists employ principles of physics, chemistry, and biology to understand Earth history and Earth processes. Geologists should be broadly educated in the natural sciences and have diverse field and laboratory experience with rocks and fossils, which is the primary goal of the Geology major at Wooster.
Wooster Geology majors enter a variety of occupations following graduation. Over half continue their studies in graduate school, receive an advanced degree in the geological sciences and enter a related profession. Perhaps the largest field of employment for our majors has been education, including college, early childhood to adolescent to young adult level teaching. Many Geology majors go directly into geologically related jobs, such as the environmental science industry, particularly environmental geology, hydrogeology, and environmental ethics/policy. Other Geology majors pursue diverse careers, including law, medicine, and banking.
