The goal of Hardin-Simmons Department of Geology is to teach our students a solid foundation in the various geoscience disciplines. Our department provides fundamental training for career geoscientists and introduces a basic understanding of the geological sciences for our liberal arts student.
Our programs have a strong field component providing hands-on learning opportunities across the United States. Our programs have visited the California coast, the Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, the Rio Grande Rift, the Arbuckle Mountains, and more!
Our small class sizes provide students with many opportunities to learn from faculty both inside and outside of the classroom. Your professors will know your name, are invested in your success, and can add great depth to letters of reference or recommendation.
More than 90% of our majors have a job in the field within five years of graduation. Students moving on to graduate programs have a 95% acceptance rate at major universities in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
All courses and course descriptions for the Geology Minor (GEOL) can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog.
