The complementary fields of geology and geophysics are combined in one interdisciplinary department, with graduate degrees offered in both disciplines. The undergraduate degree is in geology and geophysics. Combined with an emerging geoinformatics program, the potential for rewarding collaborations and discoveries are tremendous.
