Undergraduate Research

Faculty-Student collaborative research is the hallmark of the geology program at UWEC. Each faculty member in the Department of Geology is committed to the philosophy that 'learning' science is best achieved by 'doing' science. The learning by doing philosophy has proven enormously successful at preparing our students for both industry and graduate study. Since 2000, our students have co-authored presentations at regional GSA meetings (North-Central; Rocky Mountain; Cordilleran), national GSA meetings (Boston, Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake City), national AGU meetings (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005), and the international GAC-MAC (2003, 2004) and the Cordilleran Mineral Roundup (2000-2006) meetings.
