|Description:||The Geology program at Brandon University offers many exciting opportunities for undergraduate students. An active research program allows our students to participate in national and international projects, and provides a wonderful dimension to their education that is generally not possible for undergraduate students at larger universities. The Geology faculty aren’t just academics and researchers, they also bring many years of applied national and international experience working for industry and government organizations, from Arctic Canada to West Africa, Western Europe to Southeastern Asia, Australia to the Southwestern United States, and from Central to South America. This greatly enhances the learning and career opportunities for our geology students, who are excellently positioned to make a major positive contribution as professional geoscientists, geoscience educators and researchers of tomorrow. Geology is a global science, and Canadian geologists are in demand worldwide.
The four-year degree program provides the academic requirements to become a registered professional geoscientist. There are an abundance of employment opportunities and a chronic shortage of well-educated geoscientists. Most geoscience students have the opportunity for career-related summer employment.
