What is beneath our feet?

Millsaps offers a major in geology, a major in geophysics, a major in environmental science, and a minor in geology. Students in the Department of Geosciences are given the opportunity to participate in significant scientific research. Various sponsored projects in geology, environmental geology, and geophysics give students the unique experience of hands-on contribution to real, often publishable, research during their undergraduate years. Field trips to diverse geological terrains help emphasize the hands-on approach.

If you choose to major in geology, you will focus on the study of earth materials, internal and external earth processes, analysis of earth history, and an appreciation of geology in regard to environmental and engineering issues.
