Geology is the study of the Earth – its history, nature, materials, and processes. The Geology program at UA Little Rock provides students with knowledge of the various Earth systems and helps them develop their scientific skills. Students will learn to conduct and interpret scientific research and to successfully communicate scientific information.
Our geology students have exceptional opportunities to conduct research and enjoy real-world experiences. The major includes a rigorous, balanced core of courses and a diverse array of elective coursework, both of which include active lab and field experiences. Graduates are prepared for scientific, technical, or management careers in the geosciences or related fields, or for an advanced degree.
