...recruiters tell us that our students are the best kept secret in the Rocky Mountains, but the secret seems to be out – we’re not turning out students fast enough to meet the demand. - Sally Sutton

Students gain hands-on skills through course work, field work, internships, and volunteer work. Students apply what they learn, and develop important skills essential to the work that they will pursue after graduation.

The Geosciences program permits individual attention and strong student-professor interaction. Classes are made interactive by field trips, visiting speakers, and informal career discussions.
