at Towson University
Career opportunities in the environmental and geological sciences
are expanding rapidly, drawing on those disciplines that focus on
earth materials and processes, such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry
and hydrogeology. The geosciences major at Towson University
provides students with a strong core in the natural sciences and,
at this time, two programs in geosciences: geology and earth science.
The Geology major prepares students for further study in fields
such as petrology, structural geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy
and geochemistry. The major can also be geared towards those seeking
employment after graduation, as well as graduate study in areas
such as low temperature geochemistry, environmental geology and
hydrogeology. Employment opportunities for bachelor's degreeed geology
majors are found with industry and government in areas such as environmental
investigations and remediation and geotechnical engineering.
