Undergraduate Research

Geosciences students are encouraged to take advantage of undergraduate research opportunities. While department faculty offer a wide variety of research topics, students can also engage in research with other scientists in Keck Geology Consortium projects or by engaging in research or internships with external agencies. Students are also encouraged to attend one of many nationwide field camps, where students learn the principles of field and laboratory research.
