Overview

Bachelor of Science in Geology

The Geology program at Brandon University offers many exciting opportunities for undergraduate students. 

An active research program allows the 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 the geology students, who are excellently positioned to make a major positive contribution as professional Geo-scientists, Geo-science educators and researchers of tomorrow. 

Geology is a global science, and Canadian geologists are in demand worldwide.

The Geology Department, in conjunction with alumni, the petroleum and mining industries, and appropriate government departments, operates a successful co-op work experience program for geology students.

A Co-operative Education (Co-op) option is available for students enrolled in a Geology Major, 4-Year or 4-Year (Honours) degree.

The four-year degree program provides the academic requirements to become a registered Professional Geo-scientist.
