Our geological sciences programs let you explore the far corners of the world. All the processes on Planet Earth are complex and interrelated.
GEOLOGICAL SCIENCES IS THE MAJOR OF THE 21ST CENTURY.
Geology is ground zero for tackling global challenges like managing land, water, ocean, space, minerals, and energy resources in a sustainable way. WKU'S Geological Sciences program is Kentucky's largest undergraduate geology/earth science program (2019-2020).
|Climb With Us
Our geology programs can help you prepare for geoscience and environmental science graduate programs, prepare for jobs and internships, and gain the core knowledge necessary to pursue the Professional Geologist licensure. Our students present their research at professional conferences, author or coauthor peer-reviewed publications, and engage in active research opportunities with hands-on work using top-of-the-line techniques, tools, and equipment. We're also proud to offer study abroad and study away opportunities.
Full-time, first-time freshman who are residents of any state that borders Kentucky can attend WKU for the in-state tuition rate. This scholarship will lower the tuition cost by nearly 60% for most students, and students can still stack on other institutional scholarships to further reduce costs.
Our students are presented with applied research, internships, and professional opportunities that empower a passionate and creative culture within our Geological Sciences programs.
