Graduating as a Geosciences major prepares students for jobs in environmental consulting, in teaching, and in commercial fields such as energy and resource extraction. Many students continue to graduate schools accross the country. Recent graduates have gone to M.I.T., Woods Hole, Stanford, Princeton, Cornell, University of Washington, and U.C. Santa Cruz, among others. Since 1996, six of our majors have won NSF graduate fellowships, more than in any undergraduate program in the entire country. We stay in close contact with many of our alumni, and often see them at meetings and elsewhere.
We are proud of our accomplished Alumni!
Just to highlight a few…
