The Geology Program at the University of West Georgia is a friendly and inclusive group of highly trained Earth scientists who believe hands on experience is the foundation of your education and future career.
We are a welcoming, student-centered program that offers a challenging and rewarding educational experience that is as diverse as our planet. Our classes emphasize hands-on learning in the lecture hall, laboratory, and across the world. We believe that students learn best through applying geology concepts outside in nature as well as through conducting their own original research. We also offer testing and licensure with the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG). Our students frequently expand their networks through the presentation of independent research at regional and national conferences.
Curiosity is at the root of science and we welcome any students that are interested in learning more about the earth and our environment. Many of our students have continued their studies in Geology at leading graduate schools.
