If you have a passion for science and the outdoors, along with a desire to become engaged with other students and faculty in high-quality research in the geosciences, you will be right at home as a geology major at UW-Eau Claire. 

Whether your goals are to pursue a career in industry, governmental regulatory agencies, education, or  a career in scientific research, a degree in geology from UW-Eau Claire will be a step above the rest. Our field-based curriculum provides students the opportunity to do the work of geologists from the first entry level course, and that fact alone sets us apart.

Undergraduate research is a unique aspect of this program, and the collaborative scholarship going on in the Department of Geology is a prime reason that UW-Eau Claire is named the Center for Excellence in Undergraduate Research by the UW System. The department also has extensive high-tech equipment to support both field and lab-based projects, and amazing paid internships and scholarship opportunities are made available through the Responsible Mining Intiative.

UW-Eau Claire has an extraordinary undergraduate geology department. The faculty investment in field-based learning and student immersion experiences at both the lower-division general education level and the upper-division level for majors is greater than any geology program I know of. That this happens at a state university is amazing.
