Geology is the study of the earth and all its physical aspects. This includes studying the earth’s past and present and making predictions about its future.

Oil, gas, and mining businesses employ geologists to mine the earth’s natural resources. You can also work at an environmental firm and study water, rocks, and soil for environmental cleanup. Engineering is another option: soil and rocks have certain strengths which is valuable knowledge to leaders of construction projects. You can also specialize in a specific area of the earth, such as the ocean or in specific phenomena such as earthquakes, usually at the graduate level. Some of these jobs require some outdoor and field work in addition to research.

Most jobs in geology require a bachelor’s degree, but good news for those wanting to become geologists: the outlook is good for geoscientists, with employment expected to grow faster than average.
