Internships, Research Opportunities, and More

Beyond coursework, our department offers ample opportunity to participate in research. Whether that be assisting a graduate student or professor in the laboratory or field setting, or conducting an independent study culminating in a senior thesis, students who participate in research tend to stand out among their peers on job and graduate school applications. While undergraduate research is not required, it is highly recommended and completion of such a project may qualify you for departmental honors upon graduation.

Current areas of research include:

  • Watershed-scale soil and water pollution studies
  • Effects of climate change, floods, and dams on rivers and their flood potential
  • Paleoclimatology and paleoceanography
  • Field and experimental petrology (the chemistry and physics of minerals and rocks)
  • Basin-scale sedimentology and mountain-building
  • Sedimentology and stratigraphy along glaciated margins
  • Remote sensing
  • Seismology of convergence zones
  • Geomicrobiology of extremophiles
  • Microbes in salt crystals
