Geology is the study of the Earth. At William & Mary the Geology department takes a broad view on the Earth, offering courses that focus on the workings and history of the Earth’s interior, surface, and atmosphere. The Geology department is a dynamic, intellectual community with a strong undergraduate program in which all Geology majors pursue an original research project. Geologists typically go to the field for their primary data, and field trips form a distinctive and critical component of the Geology experience at William & Mary. Our graduates go on to success in many fields, ranging from the earth and marine sciences to law and public service. Learn more about us...
