The Department of Geology at William & Mary hosts Brown Bag presentations as well as guest Seminar speakers. Brown bags typically see our geology students or other geoscientists presenting on their research, discussing an internship experience, sharing their outreach projects, bringing awareness to a topic and more.
Seminars often consist of research presentations conducted by graduate students and professors as well as geoscientists and department alums that share with us the work they do to make us aware of all the career options available to those interested in geosciences.
