The faculty in the Geology department all maintain active research labs. There is ample opportunity for motivated undergraduate students to conduct original research with faculty members in the Department of Geology, and many of our majors do just that!

Research students work one-on-one with faculty members in their research groups. These research projects are routinely funded, and students have the opportunity to travel to interesting locations for fieldwork (in the US and potentially abroad), could potentially get paid to conduct research, and the opportunity to publish their work and travel to national conferences to present findings.
