BSc in Geology

The mission of Millsaps Geology Department is the creation and development of a community of productive and involved world citizens equipped with a broad and thorough knowledge of the process and specifics of the Earth Sciences. The Department focuses on educating and encouraging students to develop an on-going curiosity and involvement with all elements of their environments so that these future leaders of society incorporate logical, critical assessment of the natural world into the fabric of their individual philosophies.

All students in the Department of Geology are given the opportunity to participate in significant scientific research. Various sponsored projects in basic geology, environmental geology, and geophysics have given 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. Past field trips have included areas such as the Appalachian Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, southeastern and southcentral Alaska, the Yucatan Peninsula, the central and northern Rocky Mountains, and the greater Yellowstone area....

Upon the first reaction, you might think Geography has little to do with your day-to-day life and even less in regard to what you intend to do for your future career plans. You might think that studying geography is nothing more than memorizing state capitals or learning to plot points on a map. But geography, as an academic field, is about much more than that!

Professional geographers explore and analyze the multitude of connections and relationships between virtually every facet of the places and spaces over the Earth's surface. Therefore, geography is actually the original spatial science. Some geographers have even described the field simply (yet appropriately) as the study of the "why of where?" (Note: Not just the "where?") ... [-]
